A Poem Tribute to my Grammy

December 18th, 2013

Earlier in December, my grammy turned 70 years old. Being the writer that I am, I wrote a poem especially for her. Enjoy!


Ever since I was a little girl

I wanted to grow up to be just like you.

From sleepovers to Lancaster to day outings,

You have always inspired me.

I always wanted to grow up to be a baker-

Open my own bakery or work at Hennings.

Only you could make the finest cakes

And I wanted to too.

Now that I have grown older

The traditions you have created inspire me too.

Your emphasis on family and the bi-monthly dinners you strive to have

Complete with food fit for a king.

The time when you helped me with a mystery dinner

Or even when you cook the recipes handed down

Or the new ones that are gluten-free.

When birthdays roll around, you pick the very best gift

And you know our likes and dislikes.

Your ears and heart are always open to a knock at your door,

Your grammy nature worries as we’re driving on the road.

But something that’s even more special is that I know

You’re always praying over me in whatever path I go.

So now you’ve turned 70, your wisdom surpasses us all.

It doesn’t mean I love you less,

It means I love you more.
