Grandma On a Loan

Twenty years ago, I was a small child, searching for something that I never got but needed so desperately

I longed for what other kids my age had….a grandmother to love and cherish me

I did not have a grandmother to hug or kiss the tears away

But when I found my best friend, I found my grandma that same day

Grandma, with eyes so bright and sparkling blue

Grandma, full of heart and I love yous

She was a void fulfilled, a secret kept, an answered prayer to a lonely little girl

She was a kiss on the head, and the best Grandma in the whole wide world

Amazing how she could wrap you in a hug, and all the pain would just melt away

No matter what the situation was, she always knew just what to say

God hears our prayers, he knows our heart, and he knew that I needed a grandma to call my own

God blessed me with best friends that shared their grandma with me…thank God for my Grandma on loan

The years passed by and as I grew it seemed my problems grew as well

I could tell grandma I was okay but when something was bothering me she could always tell

She was always a step ahead of me, she knew what I was thinking before I even spoke

It was as if Grandma heard my heart breaking, everytime it broke

She would pick up the pieces of my shattered heart, wrap me in her arms and magically the pain would start to ease

I asked her once how she made the hurting stop, and she said she bowed her head and got down on her knees

Grandma, she was a mender of hearts, a healer of the soul

Grandma, she was a mentor, with a wisdom few will ever know

Miraculous how she could stitch a heart back together when it seemed beyond repair

No woman could touch God’s throne, like her when she spoke to Him in prayer

God hears our prayers, he knows our heart, and he knew that I needed a grandma to call my own

God blessed me with best friends that shared their grandma with me…thank God for my Grandma on loan

I lost so many things in my life, and I am ashamed to say at some dark times, I even lost my faith

But I needed only see Grandma, to remember God was real, she always reminded me of his saving grace

I spoke to Grandma often, about how I wanted a baby, a child to call mine

She would just smile and tell me, “It will happen, child, but in God’s time”

She had a way of telling you about God that left you hungry for his love

Everytime, I sat with her I was reminded of the Good Lord above

Grandma, with a heart of gold and a ready smile

Grandma, reminding me to talk to God every once in awhile

Astounding how she could whisper such simple words and I would feel such peace

An afternoon with Grandma, always brought me back kneeling at the Master’s feet

God hears our prayers, he knows our heart, and he knew that I needed a grandma to call my own

God blessed me with best friends that shared their grandma with me….thank God for my Grandma on loan

I have been given 2 miracles that call me Mommy and I know Grandma’s prayers helped to make that dream come true

On February 4, Grandma traded in her pain for comfort, she is in heaven where all angels go when their time is through

She didn’t leave us, and although she left her earthly body, she didn’t really die

Angels don’t stop living they just sprout up wings and fly

Today she is dancing, singing in streets as gold as her heart and soul

I know God is welcoming her in to the pearly gates, as we are letting her go

Grandma, with a halo on her head and a smile upon her face

Grandma, being born anew wrapped in the Lord’s embrace

My heart is broken to say farewell, but if she was here she would tell me not to cry, and wipe away my tears

It doesn’t feel like I had her long enough, but I am so glad I had her in my life for the past 20 years

I have no doubt that she was an angel here on earth, but even angels must be called home

God blessed me with an angel for a Grandma…thank God for my Grandma on a loan
