1. Grandma Is a Beautiful Angel

       by Christopher Warner

A beautiful angel is all that is here
Saying O’Lord please leave me here
Not ready to leave but has to go
Wants to go back but God says no
A husband and children
Grandchildren and friends
A meaningful life that suddenly ends
And angel is what she was meant to be
Now think of all that she can see
Watching over her family night and day
Saying I love you in her own special way
In the night we sleep and in the day we cry
While she watches us all from her star in the sky.

2. Away

       by James Whitcomb Riley

I cannot say and I will not say
That she is dead, she is just away.
With a cheery smile and a wave of hand
She has wandered into an unknown land;
And left us dreaming how very fair
Its needs must be, since she lingers there.
And you-oh you, who the wildest yearn
From the old-time step and the glad return-
Think of her faring on, as dear
In the love of there, as the love of here
Think of her still the same way, I say.

3. Grandma Died

       by Ron Tranmer

Heavenly Father took Grandma
up to Heaven when she died.
When my Momma told me
I ran to my room and cried.

I asked Heavenly Father
why my grandma had to die.
I cried myself to sleep, and dreamt
that Grandpa told me why.

“Grandchild, I know how you miss
your Grandma’s tender touch.
I know how much you love her,
and she loves you very much.

But I missed her too, sweet child
so Heavenly Father brought her here.
If you could see our happiness
you wouldn’t shed one tear.”

When I awoke from dreaming
the wonderful dream I had
About Grandma being with Grandpa,
I didn’t feel so bad.

4. A Grandmother’s Love Never Fades

       by Amelia Vandergast

The smell of your perfume
your favourite song on the radio
it all brings me back to you.

When my eyes were brand-new
you were keen to show me the world
the sights I would see were more than just images in the periphery
they rooted in my mind as my fondest memory.
I recall them when the world seems too much
or just when I miss your touch
your soft embraces
your love left traces of you inside me.

I wish I could have known you for longer
I wish I could have known you when you were younger
every second with you made me stronger.

Your love is unforgettable
it still grows each day
you live inside of me
even if you’re not around
to take pride in me.

5. Light after Dark

       by Nurul Naiimah

As I sat by my window,
Looking out at the grey sky.
Tears rolled down my cheeks,
As its finally time to say goodbye.

Goodbye to a friend
Who was always there.
Goodbye to a family
Who always showed care.

Someone whom I turn to,
I don’t know how to move on.
Someone whom I relate to,
But now you’re gone.

But then a blue bird came,
And sat by my window.
The sun starts shining,
And evaporated all my sorrow.

Good memories came
To wash away the sadness.
Mended my heart
And filled it with gladness.

I wiped away my tears
And now that you’re gone.
I can’t give up now
I have to move on.

6. Grandma’s Life Lessons

7. You’ve Just Walked on Ahead of Me

       by Joyce Grenfell

You’ve Just Walked On Ahead of Me
And I’ve got to understand
You must release the ones you love
And let go of their hand.

I try and cope the best I can
But I’m missing you so much
If I could only see you
And once more feel your touch.

Yes, you’ve just walked on ahead of me
Don’t worry I’ll be fine
But now and then I swear I feel
Your hand slip into mine.

8. Grandma

       by Rob

The words you spoke so wisely
Have never been so clear.
All the lessons that you taught me
Still remain right here.

I am left here wishing
To hear your voice one last time,
Once more to hear you sing
That I am your sunshine.

You told me it would be all right,
But I feel that isn’t true.
The only thing to make this better
Is if I was there with you.

I know this isn’t possible,
But it’s hard to think it so.
I know you’re now not suffering,
But I hate to see you go.

I’d let you wear that fanny pack,
I swear I wouldn’t care,
Just to have you back one more time,
Just to have you there.

I’d give a million dollars,
To read one last email,
To decode that secret message
About treasures from a sale.

I know the pain will slowly leave,
And your memories will stay,
Your time with us was special,
And it is often replayed.

My sunshine was taken,
Now my skies are left grey.
Oh, the things that I would give
For only one more day.

You were more than just a Grandma,
You were my best friend.
My life has changed forever,
But I’ll still love you ’til the end.

9. She Is Gone

       by David Harkins

You can shed tears that she is gone
Or you can smile because she has lived

You can close your eyes and pray that she will come back
Or you can open your eyes and see all that she has left

Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her
Or you can be full of the love that you shared

You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday
Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday

You can remember her and only that she is gone
Or you can cherish her memory and let it live on

You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back
Or you can do what she would want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.

10. Grandma’s Departure

       by Lenora McWhorter

Grandma’s room is empty; she moved away.
She departed this life and is gone to stay.
There was no struggle, but with great ease
she closed her eyes and took her leave.

My Grandma was one sweet, loving soul.
I had no doubt where she would go.
We all knew Grandma walked with God
and bound for heaven to get her reward.

No way we can know the lives she touched
because that gracious soul gave so much.
She would share her flour, sugar or meal
or say a prayer to get your body healed.

We had many talks as she sipped her tea.
She shared years of wisdom with me.
She taught me family values and to be kind,
but she always had Jesus on her mind.

“You need the Lord,” is what she would say.
“You can’t make it in this world no other way.”
Then grandma kneeled and bowed her head
and a stirring prayer she always said.

“Lord Jesus, I want to talk to you awhile
to ask you please bless this precious child.”
Then she asked the Lord to watch over me
and to please make me what I ought to be.

My life is shaped by grandma’s prayers,
and I’m thankful for her being there.
Her love was evident in so many ways
in her kind words and on her smiling face.

Grandma’s leaving is heaven’s gain,
but one day I will see her again.
Because the Jesus that Grandma knew,
she made sure I got to know too.

2. A Long Cup of Tea

       by Michael Ashby

Death is too negative for me
So I’ll be popping off for a long cup of tea
Do splash out on two bags in the pot
And for my god’s sake keep the water hot
Please pick the biggest mug you can find
Size really does matter at this time
I’ll pass on the lapsang with that souchong
And that stuff with bergamot
And stick with my favourite friend
You know the English breakfast blend
Breakfast! thanks for reminding me
There’s just time before I fail
To stand on ceremony
Two rashers of best back, Should keep me
Smelling sweet up the smokestack
So, mother, put the kettle on for me
It’s time, mother, for my long cup of tea

3. Carved in Stone

       by Beatrice Boyle

Here lies Bea at a hundred and three
In the place she vowed She’d never be
She always swore She’d never die
Till all who bugged her
In the grave would lie
She hung on tight to the very end
No foe was left for flowers to send
Let’s raise a glass and shed a tear
She sure raised hell while she was here!

4. The Crowds

       by Rudolph Rinaldi

the crowds taking the subways
enter the underground
below upon waking
to rise up
to work
in the clouds above

only to go back in the evening
down through the underground
low upon leaving
to home
to family
to final rest

in the underground
or in the clouds above

5. Danger – Musicians

       by Nick Bagnall

There was an old lady from Ireland
Who was frightened to death by a brass band
We watched with dismay
As without delay
They buried her corpse in the band stand

When it’s not the body we care about, but the soul!

7. Bye May

       by Wendy M

Here Lays May
Who was on her way
To a little old bar,
She was hit by a car.

8. People Planters

       by Doris Culverhouse

People planters find it hard to tear
at the loss of your near and dear

At two hundred percent profits
Devastation gives them fat pockets

Diggers open up the ground
Where people sprouts can be found….

Sprouts or people dust….it is hard to know!?

9. Ding Dong the Wicked Witch Is Dead

       by Dan Keir

Globally, miners jubilantly jump for joy
Smiles on the faces of every girl and boy
The grins of a newly opened Xmas toy
Thatcher’s dead.

Trade unionists bounce along the street
Music blaring and the tapping of feet
From nurses to Bobbies still on the beat
Thatcher’s dead.

Street parties announced in the nation
Satan who brought economic inflation
Is deceased, now’s the time for elation
Thatcher’s dead.

Its times like this I’m sad I’m an atheist
And can only shout and wave my fist
And then go to the pub and get pissed
Thatcher’s dead.

10. Viking Funeral

       by David Welch

Viking, Viking burning bright,
on a pyre in the night,
though the wind howls and bites,

Through the cold and falling snow,
on the lake your fire glows,
the ships combusts, and now I know
this here is how I want to go.

Still strong to bear us well.

the trunk of my tree,
I live my life as her legacy.

she’s in the air you breathe
with every breath you take.
She sings a song of hope and cheer,
there’s no more pain, no more fear.
You’ll see her in the clouds above,
hear her whisper words of love,
you’ll be together before long,
until then, listen for her song.

and lovely forest, green.
And gives us new found comfort,
when we on Him will lean.

1. My Grandmother

       by Victoria L. Payne

In my Rose Garden of memories
I see you standing there
An angel in disguise
Who taught me how to care
I long to hear your voice
for real not in my dreams
I am missing you so much these days
how empty my world seems
People say time heals all wounds
that someday the pain will subside
But Grandma I can tell you
I think they must have lied
The emptiness I am feeling now
is strong and I am weak
These days go by without you
so dreary and so bleak
In my Rose Garden of memories
I know you’ll always be
for though you’re gone
from this mortal world
In my heart you’ll always be

It flows through the fabric of our lives
Quenching our thirst for comfort
And acceptance.

The memory of this love stays with us
It brings peace and acceptance gently ebbing into the banks of our daily lives
Rushing over the rapids of our grief.
Never ending or beginning but a constant source of comfort in our memories

4. God Saw You Getting Tired

       by Anonymous

God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be
so he put his arms around you and whispered,
“Come to Me”
With tearful eyes we watched you

and although we love you dearly
we could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating
hard working hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best

5. The Watcher

       by Margaret Widdemer

She always leaned to watch for us
Anxious if we were late,
In winter by the window,
In summer by the gate.

And though we mocked her tenderly
Who had such foolish care,
The long way home would seem more safe,
Because she waited there.

Her thoughts were all so full of us,
She never could forget,
And so I think that where she is
She must be watching yet.

Waiting ‘til we come home to her
Anxious if we are late
Watching from Heaven’s window
Leaning from Heaven’s gate.

6. My Loving Grandmother

       by Nivedeeta Pereira

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.

to make our lives worthwhile.
We found both hope and courage
just by looking in her eyes.
Her laughter was a source of joy,
her words warm and wise.
There was a kindness and compassion
found in her embrace,
And shining down from Heaven above
we see the glow of Grandma’s face.

8. If Flowers Grow in Heaven

       by Anonymous

If flowers grow in heaven,
Lord, then pick a bunch for me.
Then place them in my grandmother’s arms
and tell her they’re from me.

Tell her that I love and miss her

place a kiss upon her cheek and hold her for a while.

Because remembering her is easy,
I do it every day,
but there’s an ache within my heart
that will never go away.

9. Grandma

       by Anonymous

You fed me well, you made me strong.
You taught me to know right from wrong.
You made me feel that I belong.
You showed me the value of a song.

You gave me life, you gave me love.

You always knew the way I feel.
You used the words you thought might heal.
You convinced me it was no big deal.
Your advice would keep it real.

You gave me life, you gave me love.

Broken hearts you liked to mend.
It was not in your nature to offend.
Birthday cards you’d always send.
You knew the value of family and friends.

You give me life, you give me love.

You left me now, you’ve gone away.
I’m left behind, I have to stay.
So I’ll just have to pray.
I’ll meet you again another day.

You always had that ‘special touch’.
I loved you so very, very much.

You gave me life, you gave me love.
Please watch over me from above.

10. A Grandmother Just Like You

I just want to let you know
You mean the world to me
Only a heart as dear as yours
Would give so unselfishly

The many things you’ve done
All the times you were there
Help me know deep down inside
How much you really care

Even though I might not say
I appreciate all you do
Richly blessed is how I feel
Having a grandmother just like you

1. Rest in the Heavens Above

       by Jessica Mendez

Grandmother, whom I adored ever so much
No longer here on earth, but in the heavens above

Oh how I’ll miss your smile and your laughter so big and full of life.
Now you sore in the sky you’re an angel so high
You are now with our maker; tell me what is he like?

Are your day’s filled with song and praise,
do you sway to the music that angel harps play?

Grandmother, whom I adored ever so much
How you will be missed, but never forgotten

I shall remember your scent, your voice and your every feature.
After all you were one of my teachers
You’ve taught me so much and so many life lessons

Grandmother, whom I adored ever so much
Rest now; ever so peaceful in the heavens above.

2. Missing You, Nan

       by Sarah Harrison

The years will always roll on by
and time will always pass,
but every memory I have of you
will definitely always last.

I like to smile when I think of you.
I try not to be sad.
It’s pretty easy to do
with all the good times that we’ve had.

But sometimes I can’t help it,
and memories leak out of my eyes,
and I quickly try to brush them away.
I know you wouldn’t want me to cry.

I don’t know how it’s possible,
but I love you more now than I did then,
and I really cannot wait until
the day that I see you again.

Because, Nan, I know I would take hold of you
and never ever let you go.
Every day that passes by
I miss you more and more.

3. My Grandma

       by Anonymous

You were in my life for the longest time
and now your gone all in a blink of an eye
I am so confused, I have no idea why
this had to happen to you
but I guess cancer takes some of the best
and we all have to die someday
I just wish it weren’t so soon
I need to know that you’re okay and you’re up there with God
watching over me still witnessing me grow
I need some sort of sign, I need to know
I guess the pain and suffering is all done
I miss you grandma.
I just need one more day with you so I can tell you how much I love and miss you.
grandma I love you with all my heart.
and I know that you’re up there watching over me.
I remember how you told me everything,
no matter what happens, will be okay.
I love you grandma, rest in peace.
I’ll be seeing you again one day.

4. Remember Me

       by Christina Rossetti

Remember me when I am gone away,
Gone far away into the silent land;
When you can no more hold me by the hand,
Nor I half turn to go, yet turning stay.

Remember me when no more day by day
You tell me of the future that you planned;
Only remember me; you understand
It will be late to counsel then or pray.
Yet if you should forget me for a while
And afterwards, remember, do not grieve:
For if the darkness and corruption leave
A vestige of the thoughts that I once had,
Better by far that you should forget
And smile than that you should
Remember and be sad.

5. 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 you’re 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!

6. Her Smile

       by Anonymous

Though her smile is gone forever
and her hand I cannot touch
I still have so many memories
Of the one I loved so much.
Her memory is now my keepsake
Which with I’ll never part.
God has her in his keeping
I have her in my heart.
Sadly missed but never forgotten.

7. A Tear for Nana

       by J. Allen Shaw

Grandmother, when I think about you being gone,
My heart is saddened, and I don’t know how I’ll go on.
You always had time to listen to my complaints,
I’ve said so many times, “That woman’s a saint.”

You taught me more about life than anyone at all.
And were always available, anytime I would call.
I shed a tear because my “Nana’s” gone.
Now somehow I’ll find the strength to go on.

8. A Winners Creed

       by Anonymous

if you think you are beaten you are.
If you think you dare not, you don’t.
If you’d like to win, but think you can’t.
It’s almost a cinch you won’t.
If you think you’ll lose, you’ve lost
For out in the world we find
success begins with the person’s faith,
it all in the state of mind
life’s battles don’t always go to the stronger or faster hand,
they go to the one that trusts in God,
And always thinks I can”

9. Legacy of Love

       by Anonymous

A wife, a mother, a grandma too,
This is the legacy we have from you
You taught us love and how to fight
You gave us strength; you gave us might.
A stronger person would be hard to find,
And in your heart you were always kind.
You fought for us all in one way or another
Not just as a wife not just as a mother.
For all of us you gave your best
And now the time has come for you to rest.
So go in peace, you’ve earned your sleep,
Your love in our hearts we’ll eternally keep.

1. Dear Grandmother, from Your Grandchildren

       by Michele Meleen

Dear Grandmother,
Thank you for all the love you gave,
that unconditional, unwavering kind.
You showed us how to put family first
and give more than receive.

We will do our best to mimic
the family bond you
created,
strengthened,
tended to.

Dear Grandmother,
from your grandchildren
there’s only one gift we can give.
We’ll live by your example
as we create our own family trees.
We’ll embody all that is a grandmother
because that’s the ultimate love.

2. Gone from Us

       by Anonymous

Gone from us that smiling face,
The cheerful pleasant ways,
The heart that won so many friends,
In bygone, happy days.
A life made beautiful by kindly deeds,
A helping hand for others’ needs.
To a beautiful life,
Comes a happy end,
She died as she lived,
Everyone’s friend.

3. A Wonderful Grandmother

       by Anonymous

We had a wonderful grandmother
One who never really grew old
Her smile was made of sunshine
And her heart was solid gold
Her eyes were bright as shining stars
And in her cheeks fair roses you see.
We had a wonderful grandmother,
And that’s the way it will always be.
But take heed, because
She’s still keeping an eye on all of us,
So let’s make sure
She will like what she sees.

4. God Looked Around His Garden

       by Melissa Shreve

God looked around his garden
And found an empty place
He then looked down upon the earth
And saw your tired face
He put his arms around you
And lifted you to rest.

God’s garden must be beautiful,
He always takes the best.

He knew that you were suffering
He knew you were in pain
He knew that you would never
Get well on earth again.

He saw the road was getting rough
And the hills were hard to climb
So he closed your weary eyelids
And said, “Peace be thine”.
It broke our hearts to lose you
But you didn’t go alone.

For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.

5. As We Look Back

       by Clare Jones

As we look back over time
We find ourselves wondering..
Did we remember to thank you enough
For all you have done for us?
For all the times you were by our sides
To help and support us
To celebrate our successes
To understand our problems
And accept our defeats?
Or for teaching us by your example,
The value of hard work, good judgement,
Courage and integrity?
We wonder if we ever thanked you
For the sacrifices you made.
To let us have the very best?
And for the simple things
Like laughter, smiles and times we shared?
If we have forgotten to show our
Gratitude enough for all the things you did,
We’re thanking you now.
And we are hoping you knew all along,
How much you meant to us.

6. Grandma’s not Old Anymore

       by Michele Meleen

Grandma’s not old anymore,
her wrinkles have all gone away.
Her joints are all working
and her hair is no longer gray.

When grandmothers die,
they instantly age down
back to a little princess
complete with a crown.

This may not be the picture
of death that you see,
but Grandma gave me her sense of humor
so it’s what I choose to believe.

7. Grandma

       by Anonymous

Grandma, you were just a girl, So many years ago.
You had your loves and had your dreams,
You watched us come and go.
You watched us make the same mistakes,
That you had made before,
But that just made you hold us tight,
And love us all the more.
We haven’t always thought about
The things that you have seen.
To us you’ve just been ‘Grandma’,
No thought of who you’ve been.
But we remember now in love,
Your life from start to end,
And we’re just glad we knew you,
As Grandma, and as Friend.

8. Missing Mama Anna

       by Leeanna James

Now that your gone,
The memories remain of what used to be,
Your beautiful Smile,
The sound of your laugh,
Your heart of Gold,
You wore on your sleeve,
Those big brown eyes,
Filled with love,
But most of all,
the love you gave,
You always had faith,
You never gave up,
You always found a way,
to make us see,
How great GOD is indeed,
I’ll never forget the times we shared,
Going to the Wal-Mart,
Cruising around,
Eating at Wagon Wheel,
Painting our toes,
or just playing around.
But Most of all just talking with you,
You always had a way with words,
A way to make me see,
But most of all you made me believe,
You helped me see why,
you had to leave,
Your spirit was strong,
your body was weak,
He saw you struggle,
He felt your pain,
He held out his hand,
You grasped it tight,
No more pain,
No more struggles,
Just the comforts of Heaven,
With each day that passes,
I’ll miss you even more.

9. You Only Have One Grandmother

       by Anonymous

You can have one special grandmother
Patient kind and true;
No other friend in all the world,
Will be the same to you.
When other friends forsake you,
To Grandma you will return,
For all her loving kindness,
She asks nothing in return.
As we look upon her picture,
Sweet memories we recall,
Of a face so full of sunshine,
And a smile for one and all.
Sweet Jesus, take this message,
To our dear Grandma up above;
Tell her how we miss her,
And give her all our love.
