1. Happy Birthday Grandmother
Partying on through
To early hours quite late
Birthdays are a day
We should all celebrate
Not always yours
But quite often another’s
Such as friends family
Fathers and mothers
Its one day a year
For many wishes to flow
Those that friends
Or family often bestow
On this special day
It’s one to relay
Wishing a wonderful
Grandmother Happy Birthday
– Poem by Christopher Robin
2. Happy Birthday, Special Treasure
God gave a gift to the world when you were born-
a person who loves, who cares,
who sees a person’s need and fills it,
who encourages and lifts people up,
who spends energy on others
rather than herself,
someone who touches each life she enters,
and makes a difference in the world,
because ripples of kindness flow outward
as each person you have touched, touches others.
Your birthday deserves to be a national holiday,
because you are a special treasure
for all that you’ve done.
May the love you have shown to others
return to you, multiplied.
I wish you the happiest of birthdays,
and many, many more,
so that others have time to appreciate you
as much as I do.
– Poem by Joanna Fuchs
Few can bring the warmth
We can find in their embrace,
And little more is needed to bring love.
Than the smile on their face.
They’ve a supply of precious stories,
Yet they’ve time to wipe a tear,
Or give us reasons to make us laugh,
They grow more precious through the years.
I believe that God sent us Grandparents
As our legacy from above,
To share the moments of our life,
As extra measures of His love.
– Poem by Unknown Author
4. Grandparents Day Poem
A grandmother has a special talent-
She always knows just what to do
To make her grandchildren happy
And to show she loves them, too.
At the family get-togethers,
She’s the first person to look for-
She can entertain small children for hours,
And they always keep asking for more.
You can tell when a grandmother’s teasing
By the twinkle that shines in her eyes-
She’s an expert at settling problems,
For she’s loving, patient and wise.
Her grandchildren always admire her,
Even when they are grown-
They always feel proud and happy
To claim Grandmother as their own!
– Poem by Mary Dawson Hughes
5. Grandma’s Wings
Grandma, I wonder
where you keep your wings.
Are they hung in your closet
with the rest of your things?
Do you put them away
and just use them at night
or give them to Rosie
to polish up bright?
I know you have wings,
for this must be true,
’cause God always gives
them to angels just like you.
– Poem by Ricky R. Hernandez
6. Nana’s Little Angel
Nana, you are special.
Your love knows no bounds
A room takes special warmth whenever you’re around.
You think I’m cute and talented and maybe even wise,
But I know that’s why all grandparents see though loving eyes
Every day with you is precious.
I’m so grateful for the time
Of all the grandparents in the world.
I’m thankful that you’re mine.
– Poem by Lindsey M. Moulton
You’re my earth, you’re my world;
you’re my moon that circles my world.
You’re my moon, you’re my star;
you’re the one I look upon in the dark.
You shine like the sun that brightens my day
And take all the dark storms away.
I will be there for you whenever you need help.
I will shine like you did through my sickness and health.
I will be that angel that sits on your shoulder
to make you happy and better when the sun goes away and sets for the next day.
Don’t worry, I will still be on your shoulder
and I will love you until the world is over.
– Poem by Shannon E. Hauser
8. Profile Of My Grandma
The way it smells when she cooks.
When you’re bad, the way she looks.
How she would do anything to help a friend.
The way she’ll stick by you until the end.
She’s one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet.
Unless you get on her bad side, then you’re in for a treat.
The way she’ll cheer you up when you’re down.
And how she helps you to turn your frown.
The way she jokes and laughs with me,
Her soul so kind, so sweet, so free.
She inspires me in different ways every day.
My grandma is wonderful in every way.
– Poem by Bridget A. Miller
9. Happy Birthday Grandma
Happy Birthday, Grandma
It’s your special day
You show us how you love us
In so many ways
You make us feel like stars
You’re our biggest fan
You cheer and clap the loudest
When we do the best we can
You’re always up for fun
And ready for us to laugh
Crazy games of dominoes and spoons
Are always a good time with Grandma
You make us feel special with lots of hugs and treats
Like we’re the most important in the world
We think you’re very sweet.
– Poem by Mary Flannery
Her smile can light up a room
Her presence is of grace
Her opinions are heard without one word
but by the look upon her face
Her touch is so gentle
Her heart as big as the moon
Her spirit is kindhearted
and warm as a summer’s afternoon
Her hair a river of gray
Her eyes radiant as the sun
Her time she’ll take no matter how long
until the work is done
Her kisses are so soft
Her hugs preferred from the rest
My granny is mine forever and ever
and she’ll always be the best
– Poem by Demecia Dean
