Thank You Nan (Sheila Smith) - Poem by Annemarie Griffiths

Happy birthday Sheila Smith, from all of us to you,
I hope you have a lovely year, of being 72!

I love you Nan, you’re the best, that there could ever be,
I want to say, thank you Nan, for all you do for me,

Thank you Nan, for all your love, for having faith in me,
For taking time to make clear, things I didn’t see,

You’re the apple in my eye, you cheer me up when I am blue,
I love you Nan, very much and the boys do too,

Thank you for the good times, the days you fill with pleasure,
Thank you for the memories and feelings that I treasure,

You’re my up when I’m down, the stars up in the sky,
You’re the smile upon my face and here’s the reason why:

You touch my life with kindness, you know just what I need,
Your caring nature shows so much in every thought and deed,

When me and rob were little kids, you really did a lot,
Everything you’ve done for us will never be forgot,

Even through your tough times, and troubles that you’ve had,
You’re still there for others, and to help you’re always glad,

You’ve been through a lot in life, I’m proud of who you are,
You’re an inspiration, you truly are a star,

You’re our guardian angel, to guide us through the years,
To give us your advice, and soothe away our tears,

You’re our family guru, you make or lives complete,
You’re the centre of our world, you keep us on our feet,

You’re here for us when times are good, and when times are tough,
To say a great big “thank you” just doesn’t seem enough,

To show you just how grateful, I really am to you,
I’m writing you this poem and hoping it will do! .
