(((I Wish You Weren't In So Much Pain)))

I wish you weren't in so much pain,
But on a beach with us in Spain.
You've always been the one that's funny,
I'm not here to take your money.

A lovely lady, Grandma you are,
In all our lives, you are the star.
So many things we've learned from you,
What's that recipe for that stew?

We just hope you feel much better,
You don't have email, so here's this letter.
We love you so much, we adore,
Even when you sleep and snore.

    In this world of modern living often the youth forget to give suitable attention to the old parents and grandmas and near dear old ones where the poet's mind have a glimpse. A good poem to read and understand where email like facilities are missing to the old ones owing to their incapacity I think.The poet had well done through the subject of choice in the poem and he deserves approval of readers in this poem.

    Ahh, grandmothers. Hopefully if she was asleep she wasn't in too much pain for a while. Very skilful rhyming and meter. (Report) Reply

I have never thought to make one about grandparents. your a romantic poet, for the poem you make and a creative one at that. i am a little envious of your creativity. but this is a good poem. you have more good ones. but in my opinion this will be my favorite. keep up the good work. I hope I get to see you blossom. (Report) Reply

    This poem is easy and natural in it's rhyme. I like how it's simplicity doesn't ruin it, and you've used many examples to describe the grandmother. Well done, it was a nice read. (Report) Reply

    This poem really makes me remind of my Grandma who taught me some poems and I actually appreciated her love to me. She was the one who took good care of me when parents were out. I definitely enjoyed her company..

    Thanks for this poem. For sure one of this days I will visit her, bring flowers and light up a candle for her.. (Report) Reply
