In Memory of My Grandmother

This poem is in memory of my grandmother who passed away October 6, 2002, I miss her so much every day. Her name was Lucille Viola Bancroft-Hill and her date of birth was November 7, 1913

A woman with a caring heart is what she was
Full of compassion, kindness and love
She touched many lives, in so many ways
She loved Jesus, God's only son, full of grace
She spoke great advice
And shared great memories of her life
So many she loved
But, now she is up above
In a much better place
Full of love, mercy and grace
She is happy, without pain
There is so much she has gained
A mansion above, God's undying love
Even though, we miss her so
She would say "Look up, I'm watching over you"
Please recieve Jesus today
Don't Delay
Because life is short
You never know when you will depart
You will see me again someday
In a place we shall forever stay.

This is a very nice poem!

heart touching and and shows the love between grandma and poet

Nice sentiments couched in sweet langauge

What a beautiful poem it shows how deeply you loved and miss this wonderful lady. I hope you are very proud of yourself because I am positive your grandmother has read your poem and is so happy.

omg...i cried.

I love poetry. But I haven't read one about a grandmother. Must be good to have a grandma, i never had one, they both died before i was born. But i am a grandmother to seven kids now. They call me Nana, and i love it and love them so much. They are better then your kids because they don't blame you.They will blame their own parents. What goes around comes around.

your grandmother sounds sweet <br />
she sounds like a giver<br />
so it seems like she'd be easy to remember<br />
my heart is with u in this time of loss and aching<br />
but know that your sorrow u have is gods for the taking<br />
u get everything and more when ur up above <br />
and believe she knows that she has got your love.

hey thats beautiful-thanks

Very nice

It's good to put feelings down on paper. As time goes by and memories begin to fade, that piece of paper may come to light, giving the opportunity to re-live happy times, and maybe shed a tear.

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL TRIBUTE TO YOUR GRANDMOTHER. I HAVE SOME POEMS, TOO, THAT I HAVE WRITTEN, ABOUT FRIENDS FROM MY PAST, AND GOOD MORNING/GOOD NIGHT POEMS. I LOVE TO WRITE POETRY. THANKING FOR SHARING YOUR NICE MEMORIAL POEM .<br />

I loved my grandmother dearly, I'm single but I dread marriage often for the fear of anything competing with her.<br />
She was and is the love of my life.<br />
She was strong, she was loving.<br />
She loved me so much, I have no doubts.<br />
I pray for her daily, I'm Catholic! That she may find rest with Our Maker.<br />
Strangely I remember her most when I listen to music.<br />
Perhaps this explains my love of music, oddly she sang little.<br />
Your story reminded me of her.<br />
Thank you.

dear sweethearxoxo,<br />

I was furious with my grandma becos she denied me some help with an inheritance when i wanted to do some business.<br />
i never spoke to her and hated her and cursed.<br />
she is 82 and living independently.<br />
<br />
Basically my anger was that she didnt love me as much as she did her other grandchildren and daughters.<br />
<br />
one fineday,i was praying and we hindus meditate.<br />
I got a clear command from inside that i must meet her immediately.<br />
I took off that night .<br />
She recieved me with so much love that i couldnt believe i hated her all the while.<br />
and many family secrets she revealed that put to rest my doubts.<br />
it was really touching.<br />
she also prays a lot and is a spiritual person.<br />
she said she would leaving her physical this year and she knows her appointed time.<br />
<br />
i grew up with her.infact she is actually my mom.<br />
<br />
all the good things in me,so few anyway,i owe to her upbringing.<br />
<br />
iam glad i listened to that inner voice.<br />
otherwise i would have been a fool who never got to know her.<br />
<br />
and wouldve hated her all her life and even after.<br />
<br />
I plan to go and stay with her for a while and visit some shrines and pray to gether on a pilgrimage.<br />
hope this is granted.<br />
<br />
bye
