The Why of Me

Now I know the why of me
was simply so that you could be.

Grandchild bouncing on my knee,
now I know the why of me.

A 4 line poem for H

I know a little girl named Hannah
A pretty, bashful and quiet child
But when she goes to visit Nanna
She eats too much chocolate and goes wild!

Final Adieu

Final Adieu

Let another sun set,
Let another flower wilt,
Let another autumn cast its gloom,
Let another tear role,
As ye part, and bid
The final adieu.

Pregnant Teenaged Daughter

That boy threatened to leave you if you didn’t sleep with him,
But now that you are pregnant he has moved on to pastures new,
Your mother and I are here to help you raise our grandchild.

Short Grandchild poem by Donna McEleny| Details | |


I didn't think
I would live to see
a great grandchild,
never mind three 
but now I have two...
 a third on the way...
words cannot begin
to truly convey
how blessed I feel...
these sweet babies,
my heart did steal !

Poetic Desires

My growling stomach
My tempetuaous breath
are drawn to
poems, poets, violent
incidents I wanted
to be published in a 
magazine I can no
longer recall the name of
and I did not cry or
laugh when my fifteenth
grandchild was born

Short Grandchild poem by Sandra Hudson| Details | |

No McNuggets

I do not like clowns!
Especially him!
I won’t encourage!
Eating at his place!
Because of Trans fats! 

Devin, Hunter,
Continue cries!
Mommy stops there!
Why can’t we too?

Hi again,
Left-hand turn,



Short Grandchild poem by Al Parry| Details | |


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.

Short Grandchild poem by Wilfredo Derequito| Details | |

Young Old Bull

My, he really is something, my egotistical friend -
Enigmatic and choleric he will be till the very end;
Youth, the loss of it, causes him no alarm, he's just so cool,   
Outwardly, creaky bones and all, he still acts like a young bull.
Keep going, old boy, I pray, till the next grandchild comes your way.

Short Grandchild poem by Phyllis Babcock| Details | |


 What a blessing a new baby boy
 May he bring you lots of love and joy
 May he be blessed by the Father above
 A small bundle of pure heavenly love
 A grandparents smile of delight
 As your eyes focus on this sight
 We wish you  both a lifetime of joy
 On this your first new grandson--a boy.

Congratulations to Peter and Sharon on their first grandchild.

A Perfect Bundle of Joy

A new little bundle of joy

A brand new grandson ,the cutest boy

We are as proud as proud can be

It's our first grandchild you see

Rylan, Micheal, Kilo is his name

Our house will not be the same

Smiles, laughter and the joy

When we first saw our little boy.

Sharing the news , giving you the scoop

To all my friends here on the soup.

Summer Time

Summer Time
and in the spring
the children sprout
growing up until they old
reminiscing on the past
(Summer Time)...
 So innocent and young
growing old and wise
telling true stories
to the children eyes
some young become old fools
just make sure its not you
Summer Time
and in the spring
the children sprout
growing up until they old
reminiscing on the past
(Summer Time)...

Short Grandchild poem by Karen Price| Details | |


The first grandchild is...
Well, a shock.
Yes, a blessing!
A gift, but a reality check!

Can it be?
Yes, for sure.
Breathe him in, stroking each golden hair.
Smell closely, the newness of life.

Feel the pulse and energy.
Celebrate and cry.
The time is passing, 
The answers are "blowing in the wind".

Some spaces filled,
while others 
are exposed.

Short Grandchild poem by Kacey Greenlee| Details | |


~The youth,such soft supple skin.
Play yet a steady reminder of how maturity takes a toll.
All the while she sits,smiles only to transcend reflection in the mirror.
Her hair streaks silver.
Through decades,every milestone has been met.
Laugh lines set deep.
Eyes glossed over like film.
Still,elation brought fourth by a glimpse of a grandchild, can not be measured.~

A Toy Brings the Ugly Me Out

He sits on top a dusty shelf;
his care when he showed none.
I think you gave me your
unwanted gifts.
And yet this
the only thing
you gave my family,
better than a beating.
I forgive you because
you are a fellow human,
but I hate you.
I hate how you remind me
that my family is jealous.
I hate how I have to hold
onto you; I don't want you.
You old, dusty,
boxed race truck;
I don't want you.

Lets buy a bunch of apples my grandchild said to me ....
 Do you like the red or green , is what I said to he ...
 I much prefer the silver ones and the gold ones look so cool ... 
 I looked at him all strangely like , convinced he was a fool ....
 Off we went with our bags and our hats , to the grocery store I thought ..
 Just goes to show the differences when an iPad I was bought .....

Go to sleep

Go to sleep my Grandchild,
dreams will come in a little while.

Close your eyes little boy,
sleep will bring much joy.

Dream land awaits you,
where troubles will be few.

to him right after i started taking care of him back in Aug. of last year, but never had an 
ending to it until today.

The Peril of Speculating on Relationships

The Peril of Speculating on Relationships

By Elton Camp

What people are to each other don’t try to guess
A mistake can get you into a most terrible mess

“And this must be your father” isn’t smart
The young woman’s husband is that old fart

“Your grandchild’s cute” to an unknown man
Who is holding onto his own daughter’s hand

“Who is this with you” is a much better bet
Than the angry response you else might get

Short Grandchild poem by Phyllis Babcock| Details | |

Cutie Pie

Sweetie pie, cutie pie you are special in my eye Giggles, giggles make me smile come and give a hug for a while Smiles, smiles all the time little grandchild of mine Trucks and cars ice cream and bars Boats and blocks keys and locks walks around the block while we stroll and talk Time for a nap little one today we had our fun Each day with you is a special one My little man, my grandson.
for Rylan

Short Grandchild poem by Phyllis Babcock| Details | |


Nothing can bring a brighter smile

Nothing can give you a happier moment

Then when a little child is in your arms

Brand new a few hours old

A precious little person to hold

Tiny little finger to hold your fingers

Tiny feet kicking the sheet

Little eyes trying to focus

On this new world around him

Eyes that open wide

Grandparents filled with pride

The most wonderful day

Our first grandchild came our way.

Infant Mystery

Your mother, laboring to give you life--
I, happy witness to love’s mystery,
So close I would be first to see your face.

Your head crowned, turned, unforgettable face!
Tiny body, precious vessel of life,
Innocence fresh from God, a mystery.

Powerful love, confounding mystery--
I hold you, bonding with sweet form and face,
Aching to keep you safe, protecting life.

Life, deep mystery, enthroned on your face.

Short Grandchild poem by Joyce Johnson| Details | |

These Hands

Once these twisted hands were shapely
And were busy every day
In the molding of three children
As a sculptor shapes his clay.

These hands were always busy
With the tasks they had to do
In the raising of a family
And in service Lord, to you.

These old hands still have the power
To write poetry to share
And to model for a grandchild
How to fold his hands in prayer.

Loving hands with age defiled
Can still soothe a sobbing child.

Short Grandchild poem by Vernette Hutcherson| Details | |

My Daughter

My daughter was six when she drowned
In a lake of cold, dark water
Whoever said, "Time heals all wounds"
Never lost a son or daughter

She had long brown hair
And big blue eyes
A parent mourns forever
When their child dies

Forty three years have passed
Since that awful day
I so miss what might have been
Maybe a grandchild along the way

I hoped someday 
My heart would heal
But even after all these years
The pain is still so real.

Short Grandchild poem by ilene bauer| Details | |

Holding Henry

When I was holding Henry,
Though it wasn’t very long,
His body felt so tiny
But his presence was so strong.

His fingers, with their teeny nails,
Stretched out, as if unfurled,
When just two days ago,
He wasn’t out yet in the world.

I marveled at his perfect feet
And hair, as soft as down;
His face, as peaceful as could be,
With neither smile nor frown.

In the minutes I held Henry,
He was able to impart
He’d already found the pathway
Leading straight into my heart.

Short Grandchild poem by Judy Konos| Details | |

Here comes the Kid

Here I sit in peace and quiet
Much unlike years of  riot
All alone as though I'm hid
Peace until, here comes the kid!

I suck in and try to strive
Then I learn he wants to drive
OMG this can't be true?
I did this twice at 42

Where can I go that I've not been?
Grandchild's NOT my next of kin?

Someone come and get him
Please take him on the road
My peace and quiet is over
Tis quite a heavy load!
God Bless all grandparents

Short Grandchild poem by Sara Kendrick| Details | |


Popcorn popping in the mircowave
Going to decorate the tree
Yutetide carols being sung
On the stereo
Seems like Christmas to me

We know that Santa's on his way
He is flying in his magical sleigh
And every grandchild has an
Enquiring mind
Wanting to know if reindeer really 
Know how to fly

And so I'm  offering this simple
For all the kids who just won't do
Merry Christmas , Merry Christmas to you

(To the tune of Chestnuts Roasting on an open fire)

Portrait of My Grandfather

Written by Gail DeBole on January 26, 2013

Whiskers and wisdom all in one. 
Generously and gently protecting us.
Every grandchild thought they were your favorite.
You in your long johns at night.
Joking during the day like Groucho Marx.
Sleeping in your favorite chair.
Smoking smelly cigars that callously killed you.
And yet I treasure one of the boxes left from those smelly cigars.

The farm was not the same without you.
We were not the same without you.
I was too young to know.

Charlottes Sonnet

Oh to feel the heartbeat
Of a new born baby child
Nestled there against your chest
While her mother smiled

Oh there’s nothing sweeter
Than a new love in your life
Brought into this world
By a loving man and wife

Oh there’s nothing better
Than the first time that I saw
My precious little grandchild
For I’m a new grandpa

I still feel her heart a beating
From the very first time meeting

Mdailey	6/11/11

Love in its purest form
Pain in the deepest wounds
when your  family goes
astray you are not well.
time will heal most wounds
except when left by your 
child/grandchild that you 
have nurtured and cuddled
since birth and loved with 
the deepest love you know
how to bestow. 
Pray, pray pray and 
know it is not to your blame.

I love you Mom!

For Sara Kendrick
thanks for all you do and did through the years, thanks for giving up your piece of cake and 
hoe cake cornbread.

The Bell

It's displayed upon my mantel,
This relic from the past;
The bell, when rung by her sick child
Would bring our mama fast.

Thought the gilt has worn away a bit,
It still rings the same tone
That brought me to the bedside
Of a sick child of my own.

Perhaps it cost a nickel,
The bell when it was new,
But now no sum could buy it with
Its memories so true.

If that small bell brings comfort
To a grandchild, when I'm gone,
I will pass it on most gladly.
Mama's memories linger on.
