Gentle good-natured, softhearted, and grand,
Ready always with a smile and a warm helpful hand.
Admired and regarded as knowledgeable and wise,
Nurturing their grandchildren to reach for the skies.
Proudly showing pictures for everyone to see!
Always telling stories of how things used to be,
Reading books, playing games, or listening patiently.
Easy-going, easy-living, enjoying life’s pleasures,
Noticing that long life brings so many treasures.
Truly grandparents are wonderful in so many ways,
Special people who always seem to brighten our days.
