For Grandma

Posted in Poetry at 2:58 am by Sarah Bosse

Her expression is gentle and kind, yet quite knowing.
She has learned many lessons where I’m still growing.
Her life is a book of pages I love to read,
For turning a new leaf leads to what’s often unseen.
And in the unseen she sees so much more—
By God’s grace she understands what is truly in store.

To be cuddled in Grandma’s arms is this Grandchild’s desire—
To be loved by one whom she deeply admires—
Her true Grandmother, chosen not by blood or by law,
But by Christ and His perfect design, without flaw.
A Grandma this girl has never had so near,
And never, ever, one nearly so dear.
