What's it really like?
To have a grandparent
Do they tell you stories?
Of old about their life
Do they tuck you in bed?
As you turn out your light
Do they hug you with love?
And tell how great you are
Do they love and support you
No matter what your parents say
Do they shower you with gifts?
Just because they love you so
Do you have special memories?
That only you three should know
Wouldn't that be grand?
To know someone like that
To share your life's secrets
From family's strife and woes
So cherish ever moment
Ever story ever told
So with feeling and sadness
I say this with due respect
Just be damn grateful
They touched your life and soul.
Something alas I really never had.
