A Grandmother’s Prayer

I received this beautiful poem from the lovely Janie Reinart today in anticipation of my becoming a Grandmother. It’s so beautiful I just had to share…

Thanks for thinking of us, Janie x

 

A Grandmother’s Prayer by Janie Reinart

Oh Lord
Hold my sweet grandbaby
Close to you

As You so wonderfully mold
And create this child
in the palm of your hand

Sing lullabies
And kiss this little one
For me
whispering their name softly

Tell my sweet grandbaby
Grandma
Is holding you
Close
In prayer
Getting ready

Until she can cradle you
In her arms
Singing you lullabies
Softly
Kissing your sweet face
On your birthday
