These funeral poems for grandparents will provide comfort and support.
1. Granddad – Fiona Bourke
We know you can no longer stay with us,
You fought long and hard to be with us.
We know you now watch over and protect us.
Although we cannot hear your voice or see your smiling face,
We know deep down in our hearts that you have not left us.
2. We Had a Wonderful Grandmother – Unknown
We had a wonderful grandmother
One who never really grew old
Her smile was made of sunshine
And her heart was solid gold
Her eyes were bright as shining stars
And in her cheeks fair roses you see.
We had a wonderful grandmother,
And that’s the way it will always be.
But take heed, because
She’s still keeping an eye on all of us,
So let’s make sure
She will like what she sees.
3. You are Not Truly Gone, Grandpa – Kelly Roper
Grandpa slipped away,
Quietly one day.
He simply went to sleep,
No more to wake or weep.
Now we gather here
And quietly shed a tear,
As we lay him in the ground,
No solace to be found.
But Grandpa’s not truly gone,
Because his memory lives on,
In all of us who loved him,
Never to be forgotten.
4. Legacy of Love – Unknown
A wife, a mother, a grandma too,
This is the legacy we have from you
You taught us love and how to fight
You gave us strength, you gave us might.
A stronger person would be hard to find,
And in your heart you were always kind.
You fought for us all in one way or another
Not just as a wife not just as a mother.
For all of us you gave your best
And now the time has come for you to rest.
So go in peace, you’ve earned your sleep,
Your love in our hearts we’ll eternally keep.
5. God Saw You Getting Tired – Unknown
God saw you getting tired
and a cure was not to be
so he put his arms around you
Come to Me.
With tearful eyes we watch you
and saw you pass away
and although we loved you dearly
we could not make you stay.
A Golden heart stopped beating
hard working hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove us
he only takes the best
