A Poem For "Grandma"

This poem is dedicated to one of the most courageous women I know! I am proud to say that my grandmother is a cancer survivor and will continue to be the matriarch of the family for many years to come!

She also happens to be one of the most coolest women I've ever known!

Love You "Grandma!"

I will always hold her in my heart for as long as I live. Thank you so much for such a beautiful poem. Your Grandma is a special lady!

I really do adore my grandparents! When I was a teenager, they would ask me to perform songs I'd wrote at every family cookout, which was really awesome! This particular poem was written for my Grandmother when I was around 20 years old. I couldn't remember all the words, but I'm glad I was able to remember enough to submit this dedication!

Thank you for your comment!

Audrey Howitt from California on April 05, 2012:

Sam what a tender write! You must love her enormously and it sounds like she loves you tons as well and congrats to her!

@ Jirel

I tell you Christina! I pray to God for her good health as well!

My b-day is coming up this month, so as I do every year; I will be visiting my grandparents and celebrating another year of life with them! Obviously these years are more precious to me as my grandparents continue to get older.

With each visit I learn a little bit more about my family history, which is always considered by me to be priceless information!

At first I really wasn't sure about using this poem as a hub, but with each comment I feel glad that I did!

As always, thanks for your comments Christina!

@ cleaner

Hey Mike my man! It's always nice to see you around! Thanks for the comment! Your rhymes continue to inspire me to rhyme! Every now and then we tend to forget about the things that we love! I know you and I both love the art of rhyming! It helps us breathe! It helps us release everything that we have trapped inside of us at that moment!

Thanks for being one of my inspirations on Hubpages! It's brothers like you that help inspire my desire to write that fire!

sam209 (author) on March 31, 2012:

Hi, that was just beautiful, and your grandmother is lucky to have so much love, and I know she feels it.

My grandmother was an Angel too, and I still miss her. She was my everything when I was growing up. And still is.

Thanks for sharing this from the heart.
