Dear Santa I want a batmobile that can fly
I want to go way up above the sky
You probably think it's silly and are asking yourself, why?
You see I've got to get to heaven so it has to go real high
Don't get the wrong impression, I don't want to die
I wish to meet a couple grandparents,for them mom and dad do cry
They say they'd love me and wish I could have met them as they let out a sigh
If I can't have a batmobile I'll settle for a set of wings,just bring me something that can fly

Son Of A Gun
My Great Great Grandpa was a musket
only one son he would want.
My Great Great Grandma named him shotgun
he used to love to hunt.
He too would only want one son
and that's just what he got.
My Great Grandma named him rifle
he was a single shot.
Married with one son himself
Grandpa wouldn't take no static.
His son was highly favored
and they named him automatic.
Along then came my daddy
who I never gave no lip.
He lived inside a holster
that men wore on their hip.
He had a great big family
but I'm his favorite one.
My daddy was a pistol
I'm a son of a son of a son of a gun.

Although my body is consumed
with pain, and it seems a dark
cloud seems to hover above
No matter what we go through
We are surrounded by God's love
Although my body fails me here
One day I will have a body
that never fails
We will spend eternity with
God, and never feel any
suffering and pain, and there
will be joy everlasting

5th grade, 6th grade, christmas, fun, grandparents, happy,
Shoppers buying their families' gift wishes,
one with thoughts of handpainted reindeer dishes,
the holiday traffic curves like a long red ribbon perfect,
as children's eyes reflect-
the exciting joy of seeing Santa at the mall,
some Christmas moments are new, we have a ball,
our young grandchildren may be Yuletide baking
but their angel sugar cookies,
we love, they complete such a festive scene,
made of royal icing red and green.

Teenage Girls clad in the latest fashions,
Do it whenever they meet,
Grown men aren't afraid to show some passion,
When their team's comeback is complete,
They can say hello, they can say goodbye,
And anything inbetween,
If you open your arms and crack a smile,
There is nothing that a hug cannot mean.

Grandma, you are so special, your love knows no bounds.
A room takes special warmth whenever your around.
You think I am cute and talented and maybeeven wise,
But, I know thats why all grandparents see through loving eyes.
Everyday with you is so precious, I'm so thankful for the time.
Out of all the grandparents in the world I am so glad that you are mine.

GRANDPARENTS!!!To talk with grandma,
it feels little surprised,
She sits there on a silly old chair, tapping her feet.
She is weak and looks very thin,
it makes me sad to see her so,But that life is brought to her by a terrible low.
To walk with grandpa, it feels very funny,
His steps are small as ours.
He never says hurry up, he always takes his time.
He is the person genius in games.
Grandparents have different supply of special stories.
Yet, they have time to wipe our tears and make us laugh.
We can share moments of our life,As extra measures of their love…
WE SHOULD BE THANKFUL TO GOD WHO GAVE US SUCH A WONDERFUL GIFT OF GRANDPARENTS!!!

Grandparents old of grandparents new,
the unique joy that you are bringing proper.
Fairy tale's told in the rosy past,
my first granddaughters are here at last.
Fishing trips and ice cream cones,
lullaby songs until we doze.
Stories told upon cozy laps,
sunny walks on shaded paths.
Butterfly kisses and big bear hugs,
truly grandparents is another word for love.

A boy needs a Grandpa,
for man-to-man talks.
To go hand in hand,
on companionable walks.
To fix up his toys,
when they no longer go.
To tell him the things,
little boys want to know.
A boy needs a Grandpa,
to show him the way.
To handle a puppy,
to teach him fair play.
To impart bits of wisdom,
he's learned through the years.
That it's no disgrace,
for a man to shed tears.
A boy needs a Grandpa,
to sit on his lap.
And if no one is looking,
they take a wee nap.
Each wrapped in an aura,
of love and esteem.
Each smiling gently,
at some special dream.

To the great outdoors
my grandparents love to go,
simply for the atmosphere it gives
like when they play Bingo.
I like to walk the trails, the mountains,
to get my wild nature fix.
They both have bad eyesight and can't quite comprehend
these crazy realistic graphics!

A grandparent’s love is the greatest gift of all
A miracle has entered this world as a god sent blessing
And has shown us the greatest gift of life and love!
Ten tiny fingers and ten tiny toes…
A grandparent’s love you will always know
A little bundle of joy
A sweet little baby girl
An angel in disguise
You made our dreams become real
I thank the lord each day for the joy and love you bring
You are so perfect to us…
We wouldn’t change a thing
A grandparent’s love you will always know
Every day we watch you blossom and grow
We count our lucky stars
Because this is a love you will NEVER outgrow!

children, family, father daughter, kids, giving, grandfather, grandparents, heaven, poems,
"put on your doorstep
to see how you give "
live life in giving and taking
live life loving or hating
my Grandfather knew things before his time
my muse , my memories of his being kind
I have a picture of he and I
The man with a pipe in his hand
always a book he would read
I clearly see why , I remember him reading me a story
on wrinkled paper as if it had been once thrown away frustrated ,
The Poet , The Man , with Pipe in his hand
asking as a child " where are the pictures ?"
He replies " this book does not have them "
I can not draw that well .
I Love you Forever Grandpa Murray from Chicago , Do you read poems to children in Heaven ? Honoring James Murray The Poet .

Foster father of our Lord Christ,
Pray for us,
In our time of need we pray to you,
Watch over our children as you did our lord Jesus,
That they shall be blessed with good health,
And that all sickness shall be removed from their bodies.
For the newborn children, that they shall live and feel the love,
We as parents and grandparents have for them,
So that they, one day shall know and feel the love of our Lord Jesus Christ
by Doris Culverhouse |
dedication, family, nostalgia, prayer, love,
Today you shower little faces with kisses
Piggy back rides and little messes....
Tomorrow you speak from your infinite wisdom
Your prayer is heard deep from within
Even though we may giggle
We love that you know and love Jesus.
You let me drive your old truck in the pasture
Laughed till you peed when the chair fell backwards
Love freely, laugh often and give generously what you have
Grandparent days are too short but cheerished!
Love those GRandparents!!
Mine are the Grandest of the grands!
***To all the Grandparents out there in the soup pool.

baby, birth, blessing, celebration, grandchild, grandparents, parents,
You've taught me how to share;
You've taught me how to love.
You've taught me how to trust in the Lord above.
You've given me a faith;
Beyond all measure.
You sacrificed your needs;
for toys to bring me pleasure.
You've given from your hearts,
You've given from your souls,
and for that I love you both,
more than you'll ever know.
Now it's my turn to be All that you've been.
So, as God would have it, the cycle begins again.
You are now Grandparents;
with a new dimension of Love!
A new little grand baby, given from Heaven Above.
A little one to smile,
A little one to cry,
A little one to hold close to your hearts,
As the years go by.

grandparents, growing up, humor, nostalgia,
Many, many years ago
when grannies were little girls.
They had very long hair with polka-dot ribbons
entwined around their curls.
And granddads played with catapults and different
They were full of mischief and curious little boys.
They learn to climb the tallest trees
and tease the little girls.
And pull their polka-dot ribbons out
and mess up all their curls.
Then they grew up and fell in-love
that's when their lives began to change.
They'd act daft with lovey stuff
which some girls found very strange.
Lives tapestry exchanges their struggles
The best memories are those of my grandparents
and the changes in their lives.

life, love, house, city, house,
I was raised in the sticks where you never saw a cop
It was easily a two mile walk to the school bus stop
How I got to Thrillva's house was simply by hitching
We would hurry to the pond with no intention of fishing
Both emancipated and married when we hit seventeen
What a stir we made when we opted for the city scene
Within a few years the city life had choked us out
So we moved to Alaska in a magical walkabout
Bought a hillside cabin house and had two daughters
Cherished annual vacations in Hawaii's warm waters
We are proud grandparents now whose lives are full
Still live in the small town what most consider dull
by Caren Krutsinger |
funny, grandchild, grandfather, grandmother, grandparents, grandson, love hurts,
I lost the remote in the living room.
My husband and I ran around looking and looking.
At first it was just the couch pillows, we were looking through.
An hour into it we had made what looks like a bon fire,
Tipping over couches, recliners, and such.
We broke a couple of tables.
Hey, wait, my husband reminded me.
Merlin was here today.
I called Merlin’s mommy, our daughter.
She said, "Oh, darn. We just found it. We thought it
was the one we lost a couple of weeks ago."
Merlin is our two year old grandson
Whom we apparently did not watch
As well as we should have the
5 hours he was here.
He is going to have to
Leave his hoodie and
His diapers at home.

care, family, grandparents, life,
I love hearing your exhale sighs,
I love the way it's like a song,
In out. In out.
Harmonizing with each breath in.
It comforts me knowing
you're right there. Still breathing.
And we will see another day
together again tomorrow.
I love the way you need me,
Just like I need you.
We rely on eachother.
We are only human.. From dust to dust.
But for now, I cherish this every moment
I am able to spend with you.
You are a light that shines in me.
And I'll love you even after My heart
turns to dust.

child, granddaughter, grandfather, grandmother, grandparents, growth,
THE HANDS ARE GONE,
THAT CRADLED ME,
TURNED THE COVERS ON MY BED,
HANDS THAT HELPED ME BOW MY HEAD,
KNEADED A SUPPER OF MILK AND BREAD,
BATHED MY SKIN WITH LOVE AND HOPE,
KNITTED A HOME,
WITH NEEDLES OF WARMTH,
AND THEIR GENTLE HANDS,
ARE LONG GONE,
BUT A LOVING TOUCH,
AND LESSONS LEARNED,
IN A MEMORY,
~Vickie Thayer~Poetry To Ponder~

change, grandfather, grandmother, love, nostalgia, remember, soulmate,
Nana told me once how she and Pop-pop
went courting in a horse-and-buggy.
How quaint I thought, and was a bit amazed
how far we humans have gone:
from smelly, plodding horse
to crossing an ocean in an afternoon
while six miles high....
Then Grandma told me something shocking:
she said they went out in that carriage--
to make love! Nana! I gasped silently,
until I saw she meant the words literally:
my grandparents went courting!
Months of courting to make the love
that would hold them together for over
sixty-three years...and I am only here because
two young people took long, long
buggy rides behind a tired, smelly horse.
