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!
