Her smile can light up a room
Her presence is of grace
Her opinions are heard without one word
but by the look upon her face
Her touch is so gentle
Her heart as big as the moon
Her spirit is kindhearted
and warm as a summer's afternoon
Her hair a river of gray
Her eyes radiant as the sun
Her time she'll take no matter how long
until the work is done
Her kisses are so soft
Her hugs preferred from the rest
My granny is mine forever and ever
and she'll always be the best.

Grandma, you were so sweet;
Like honey from a bee.
You always told me stories
As I sat there on your knee.
You always made me giggle
When I saw your smiling face.
You made my world such a special,
Happy, friendly place.
