Nanny

by Laura white

Such wonderful memories of nanny
The nanny we all used to know
We kept you too long and there waiting
The angels have said you can go
Bright golden gates that are shining
Full of family to bid you hello
So blow us a kiss as your leaving
Our sadness we'll try not to show
Such wonderful memories of nanny
We all have our favourites you see
As you enter those gates you'll be thinking
They're all there thinking of me!

my loving grandmother

by nivedeeta.pereira
(hubli,karnantaka, india)

When I had no shoulder to lean on,
and my eyes were filled with tears.
I had my nana to count on,
to drive away my fears.

despite all the wrong I’d done,
when the light I couldn’t see,
nana was my shining sun,
who gently consoled me.

she always encouraged and inspired me,
to follow my every dream,
she'd tell me that I was not alone,
cause she was my team.

she'd tell everyone about me,
what I was doing, when and how,
she preserved everything I ever gave her,
from the time I was little till now.

without you nana I am so lost,
my tears just won't dry,
but I believe your one of gods angels,
you spread your wings and fly.

We are sure you are around us,
in every thing we do,
your one of Gods angels we do trust,
we can see all are wishes come true.

Dear nana we really miss you,
and wish with us you'd always be,
but since God wants you too,
I’ll keep your memories alive in me.

Grandmother funeral poem

by Mac McGovern
(Cantonment, Fl, USA)

She was old when I met her,
many said her life was good,
there was none better

Her skin was rough and worn,
having weathered many a storm,
still held the softness of a newborn

Her hair retained a sliver of gold,
she was a matriarch strong and bold,
she looked at you, you did as told

Her eyes were bright and shiny,
her voice lovely and tiny

Her heart was warm and all aglow,
at peace with everyone she did know

Her body may have been small,
her back never against a wall,
always there to catch you,
to pick you up,
to lessen,
the impact of your fall

Yes, she was old when I met her,
I know there was none better,
she passed the torch onto my mother,
there will never be another,
she was my Grandmother

God Loves Me Though I'm Old

by Joye Atkinson
(Gallatin TN USA)

When I was young and vibrant I had so many friends
Some of them told me they'd be with me to the end
Now I'm old and feeble; my hair is filled with gray
How I could use those friends right now,
As in my younger days.
Some people call me senile as my mind may come and go.
I just wish somebody would care enough to show; that I am not forgotten and just love me like I am.
I know Jesus loves me and I'm still His precious lamb.
One day soon when Jesus comes and takes me home with Him,
I'll wear a crown of righteousness embellished with fine gems.
To God I have been faithful, He's always seen me through.
That day I hope to hear Him say "My child I'm pleased with you!
Enter into My presence, come rest your weary bones.
I promise you up here with Me you'll never be alone!"

Written for my mother Kathleen G. Thompson who is dying of alzheimers.

GRANMOTHER

by MELISSA
(LEXINGTON)

God looked around his garden
and found an empty space.
Then he looked down upon this earth
And saw your tired face.
He put his arms around you
And lifted you to rest.
God's garden must be beautiful
He only takes the best.

Funeral Poetry for Grandmother

by Danielle Chevrefils
(Clovis, CA USA.)

When I heard you were gone, it was hard to take in.
That you were gone, I'd never see you again.
You meant so much to me, and to many others.
you were the best grandma, and an amazing mother.
It's comforting to know you're in a better place,
and I will await to see, again, your beautiful face.

Funeral Poem For Grandmother

by Debra Denise McKelvy
(Azle, Texas)

My Grandmother passed away December 30,2008, she was 85. I loved her so very much. A piece of myself has died as well. I miss her and want to just hold her just one more time.Just tell her I loved her one more time. Just anything one more time. I am not young, I am 48 and I just never wanted to let her go. She was kind and gentle and the sweetest lady. Her last few months we knew she was dying and we just got closer and closer. Now I just want to see her things and hold them and just smell her scent. I don't want to forget. I wrote these poems for her funeral and I would like to share them with the world of her last Day.



HOLD TIGHT

Angel Wings are upon us
To comfort and guide us
Holding Tight thru Nanny's flight
To be with all Gods children.
We long for a few more minutes or
even a few more seconds.
But Our Dear Lord and Savior says
"It's time to let her go. She will be in a better place.
Let her pain be little and her suffering be gone
for in heaven she will have none."
Goodbye Nanny we say, for be on your way.
We will meet you someday, up in heaven.
We love you and will miss you each and everyday
Until once again we meet that great day in heaven.



Beautiful Day

What a beautiful day it was when you went to those heavenly gates
No more pain and suffering.
We know you were eager and very happy to go.
The smile on your face and the peace you showed was priceless.
The lord came that morning to let us know he was here with open arms awaiting for your arrival.
All the family came that day to say the things we needed to let you know it was ok.
It was a blessing in so many ways.
We loved you and held your hand until it was time to go.
Oh... those moments went by so fast.
The expressions on your face when we spoke of seeing Poppa, Thelma, Wilma and Pat.
Especially seeing your Mother and Father once again were priceless.
We wanted to know if you wanted to go see Our Dear Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,
And celebrate New Years Day with those who you have missed for so many years.
And have the most glorious celebration and bringing in the New Year.
Oh! We said what a glorious gift that would be and even though your eyes were closed,
And you could not speak, that expresssion of shock and awe were all over your face.
Then we knew you were ready.
As the minutes passed and relief showed on your face, your breathing slowed and peace came over your face. We knew you had gone to those Heavenly Gates to the Grandest Celebration of all.

Beautiful Words
by: Blue Skies

Reminiscent of when my dear Daddy died when I was but 46, and him 81, 10 short days after his birthday, six days before mine. Your words are beautifully put and you surely have a gift to bring people where you are and what you are feeling to share it with them. Hope you continue with this as it does help both yourself and others like me who read them.

Alzheimers Prayer

by Joye Atkinson
(Bowling Green KY USA)

Dear Lord I know you're busy and I hate to bother you.
With all the problems in the world you've got so much to do.
I remeber when I was a child being taught about your love.
How you died to set me free and left your throne above.
Now my body's aging and my mind's starting to go. People say I'm senile and forget things I should know.
My family's trying to get me to leave my home and friends.
They say they know what's best for me and how this all will end.
Lord would you please give them wisdom to discern the leading of your spirit and patience as they learn,
all the changes that will happen at this stage of life.
Please let them work together and not end up in strife.
As my mind continues to slowly slip away I know there will be times I won't remember how to pray. No matter how my mind ends up let my spirit be alive.
Give my family all the strength they'll need to survive.
Grant them Lord your perfect peace and give them all sweet rest.
Let them know I'm safe at last as you hold me in your breast.
Amen
