Grandma Died
By Ron Tranmer

Heavenly Father took Grandma
up to Heaven when she died.
When my Momma told me
I ran to my room and cried.

I asked Heavenly Father
why my grandma had to die.
I cried myself to sleep, and dreamt
that Grandpa told me why.

“Grandchild, I know how you miss
your Grandma’s tender touch.
I know how much you love her,
and she loves you very much.

But I missed her too, sweet child
so Heavenly Father brought her here.
If you could see our happiness
you wouldn’t shed one tear.”

When I awoke from dreaming
the wonderful dream I had
About Grandma being with Grandpa,
I didn’t feel so bad.

You’ve Just Walked On Ahead of Me
By Joyce Grenfell

You’ve Just Walked On Ahead of Me
And I’ve got to understand
You must release the ones you love
And let go of their hand.

I try and cope the best I can
But I’m missing you so much
If I could only see you
And once more feel your touch.

Yes, you’ve just walked on ahead of me
Don’t worry I’ll be fine
But now and then I swear I feel
Your hand slip into mine.

Light After Dark
By Nurul Naiimah

As I sat by my window,
Looking out at the grey sky.
Tears rolled down my cheeks,
As its finally time to say goodbye.

Goodbye to a friend
Who was always there.
Goodbye to a family
Who always showed care.

Someone whom I turn to,
I don’t know how to move on.
Someone whom I relate to,
But now you’re gone.

But then a blue bird came,
And sat by my window.
The sun starts shining,
And evaporated all my sorrow.

Good memories came
To wash away the sadness.
Mended my heart
And filled it with gladness.

I wiped away my tears
And now that you’re gone.
I can’t give up now
I have to move on.

God Looked Around His Garden
By Melissa Shreve

God looked around his garden
And found an empty place
He then looked down upon the earth
And saw your tired face
He put his arms around you
And lifted you to rest.

God’s garden must be beautiful,
He always takes the best.

He knew that you were suffering
He knew you were in pain
He knew that you would never
Get well on earth again.

He saw the road was getting rough
And the hills were hard to climb
So he closed your weary eyelids
And said, “Peace be thine”.
It broke our hearts to lose you
But you didn’t go alone.

For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.

Grandma Is A Beautiful Angel
BY Christopher Warner

A beautiful angel is all that is here
Saying O’Lord please leave me here
Not ready to leave but has to go
Wants to go back but God says no
A husband and children
Grandchildren and friends
A meaningful life that suddenly ends
And angel is what she was meant to be
Now think of all that she can see
Watching over her family night and day
Saying I love you in her own special way
In the night we sleep and in the day we cry
While she watches us all from her star in the sky.

a beautiful angael


Remember Me
By Christina Rossetti

Remember me when I am gone away,
Gone far away into the silent land;
When you can no more hold me by the hand,
Nor I half turn to go, yet turning stay.

Remember me when no more day by day
You tell me of the future that you planned;
Only remember me; you understand
It will be late to counsel then or pray.
Yet if you should forget me for a while
And afterwards, remember,do not grieve:
For if the darkness and corruption leave
A vestige of the thoughts that I once had,
Better by far that you should forget
And smile than that you should

Remember and be sad.


When I Must Leave You
By Helen Steiner Rice

When I must leave you
For a little while
Please do not grieve
And shed wild tears
Never, never
Be afraid to die
For I am waiting for you in the sky!


The Watcher
By Anne Widdemer

Her thoughts were all so full of us,
She could never forget!
And so I think that where she is
She must be watching yet.


Missing You, Nan
By Sarah Harrison

The years will always roll on by
and time will always pass,
but every memory I have of you
will definitely always last.

I like to smile when I think of you.
I try not to be sad.
It’s pretty easy to do
with all the good times that we’ve had.

But sometimes I can’t help it,
and memories leak out of my eyes,
and I quickly try to brush them away.
I know you wouldn’t want me to cry.

I don’t know how it’s possible,
but I love you more now than I did then,
and I really cannot wait until
the day that I see you again.

Because, Nan, I know I would take hold of you
and never ever let you go.
Every day that passes by
I miss you more and more.


She Is Gone
By David Harkins

You can shed tears that she is gone
Or you can smile because she has lived

You can close your eyes and pray that she will come back
Or you can open your eyes and see all that she has left

Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her
Or you can be full of the love that you shared

You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday
Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday

You can remember her and only that she is gone
Or you can cherish her memory and let it live on

You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back
Or you can do what she would want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.


A Tear for Nana
By J. Allen Shaw

Grandmother, when I think about you being gone,
My heart is saddened, and I don’t know how I’ll go on.
You always had time to listen to my complaints,
I’ve said so many times, “That woman’s a saint.”

You taught me more about life than anyone at all.
And were always available, anytime I would call.
I shed a tear because my “Nana’s” gone.
Now somehow I’ll find the strength to go on.


A Grandmother’s Love Never Fades
By Amelia Vandergast

The smell of your perfume
your favourite song on the radio
it all brings me back to you.

When my eyes were brand-new
you were keen to show me the world
the sights I would see were more than just images in the periphery
they rooted in my mind as my fondest memory.
I recall them when the world seems too much
or just when I miss your touch
your soft embraces
your love left traces of you inside me.

I wish I could have known you for longer
I wish I could have known you when you were younger
every second with you made me stronger.

Your love is unforgettable
it still grows each day
you live inside of me
even if you’re not around
to take pride in me.


Grandma’s Departure
By Lenora McWhorter

Grandma’s room is empty; she moved away.
She departed this life and is gone to stay.
There was no struggle, but with great ease
she closed her eyes and took her leave.

My Grandma was one sweet, loving soul.
I had no doubt where she would go.
We all knew Grandma walked with God
and bound for heaven to get her reward.

No way we can know the lives she touched
because that gracious soul gave so much.
She would share her flour, sugar or meal
or say a prayer to get your body healed.

We had many talks as she sipped her tea.
She shared years of wisdom with me.
She taught me family values and to be kind,
but she always had Jesus on her mind.

“You need the Lord,” is what she would say.
“You can’t make it in this world no other way.”
Then grandma kneeled and bowed her head
and a stirring prayer she always said.

“Lord Jesus, I want to talk to you awhile
to ask you please bless this precious child.”
Then she asked the Lord to watch over me
and to please make me what I ought to be.

My life is shaped by grandma’s prayers,
and I’m thankful for her being there.
Her love was evident in so many ways
in her kind words and on her smiling face.

Grandma’s leaving is heaven’s gain,
but one day I will see her again.
Because the Jesus that Grandma knew,
she made sure I got to know too.


Missing Mama Anna
By Leeanna James

Now that your gone,
The memories remain of what used to be,
Your beautiful Smile,
The sound of your laugh,
Your heart of Gold,
You wore on your sleeve,
Those big brown eyes,
Filled with love,
But most of all,
the love you gave,
You always had faith,
You never gave up,
You always found a way,
to make us see,
How great GOD is indeed,
I’ll never forget the times we shared,
Going to the Wal-Mart,
Cruising around,
Eating at Wagon Wheel,
Painting our toes,
or just playing around.
But Most of all just talking with you,
You always had a way with words,
A way to make me see,
But most of all you made me believe,
You helped me see why,
you had to leave,
Your spirit was strong,
your body was weak,
He saw you struggle,
He felt your pain,
He held out his hand,
You grasped it tight,
No more pain,
No more struggles,
Just the comforts of Heaven,
With each day that passes,
I’ll miss you even more.


Rest In The Heavens Above
By Jessica Mendez

Grandmother, whom I adored ever so much
No longer here on earth, but in the heavens above

Oh how I’ll miss your smile and your laughter so big and full of life.
Now you sore in the sky you’re an angel so high
You are now with our maker; tell me what is he like?

Are your day’s filled with song and praise,
do you sway to the music that angel harps play?

Grandmother, whom I adored ever so much
How you will be missed, but never forgotten

I shall remember your scent, your voice and your every feature.
After all you were one of my teachers
You’ve taught me so much and so many life lessons

Grandmother, whom I adored ever so much
Rest now; ever so peaceful in the heavens above.


My Grandma

You were in my life for the longest time
and now your gone all in a blink of an eye
I am so confused, I have no idea why
this had to happen to you
but I guess cancer takes some of the best
and we all have to die someday
I just wish it weren’t so soon
I need to know that you’re okay and you’re up there with God
watching over me still witnessing me grow
I need some sort of sign, I need to know
I guess the pain and suffering is all done
I miss you grandma.
I just need one more day with you so I can tell you how much I love and miss you.
grandma I love you with all my heart.
and I know that you’re up there watching over me.
I remember how you told me everything,
no matter what happens, will be okay.
I love you grandma, rest in peace.
I’ll be seeing you again one day.
