A Mother and Grandma is someone with love in her heart, She's gentle and ever so kind, She fits in so well with those who are young Because of her so alert mind; She's always around when kids need her most At drying up tears, she's a whiz And when it comes to scaring up sweets She does it like nobody's biz; She's spry as a youngster, her humor is grand Her wisdom is something to hear, She loves everyone and, in turn, everyone Thinks that she's really a dear. She really is something truly unique So precious, so cherished, so fine, So here's to that wonderful person we love, The mother, grandma, we love for all time.
