For Granny …

My Mum has been visiting this last week, she left for home this morning.  We see her maybe 5 or 6 times each year.  I miss her.  The children love her.  She is awesome.  We’re all feeling a bit low tonight, so here is a little poem to let her, and Grandparents everywhere, know how much they are loved, and the hole they leave behind when they have to go home.  Love you Mum xxx

 Granny, when you come and stay

Our  smiles they spread out wide,

You’re always there to play with us

At the park, on the swing, on the slide.

Granny, you don’t mind if we

Want to cover you in leaves,

You lay down happy as a lamb

If it makes us smile, you’re pleased.

Granny, you will paint and make

And dance and sing and more,

And even when you tell us off

We love you to the core.

Granny, you will always come

With lots of gifts and toys,

We love them all, but to have you here

Is the very best present of all.

Granny, we know that when you’re here

Our Mummy’s happy too,

She loves you lots and when you’re gone

She’s sad, just like we two.

Granny, when you snuggle up

Beside us on the chair,

We hug in tight and treasure it

Tomorrow you won’t be there.

Granny, when you leave for home

Our smiles they shrink, we cry,

We miss you when you’re not around

Please come back soon, do try!
