When autumn leaves have fallen
When winters snow lays deep,
When spring returns the daffodils
And the summers harvest has been reaped.
My memories of my Grandmother
Lay deep inside my head,
It makes me smile, sometimes cry,
Because she was such a human being
Who taught me about life thats why.
She loved the beauty around her,
Children she adored,
Her talent was endless,
Her poetry you had to applaud.
She was a country girl was gran,
A worker through and through.
She would often chat to me
About the things she had to do.
She had a sense of humour,
That kept me laughing all day.
She had ninety four years on this planet,
And lived everyone to the full.
She even on occasion had me
Winding up her wool.
Dear Gran I love and miss you
I'm a man now shedding some tears.
I'm thinking of all the happy times
We had throughout the many ears.
I have beautiful memories for all seasons,
I remember positive thought you would say
You've got to get on with it son,
And live for today.
And as I look up into a starry sky
I blow my gran a kiss,
And thank her for all she did for me,
And god bless her for wonderful
Memories like this.
Love Anthony XXXXXXX
