~ The Apple Of Grandma's Eye ~

From the very day that you were born,
You were "The Apple Of Grandma's Eye;"
I know in my heart she still feels this way,
Even from her heavenly home there on high.

As she watched you grow throughout the years,
You stole her heart away;
Your sweet love and thoughtfulness of her,
Often made her day.

The single red rose that you gave to her,
Along with the baby's breath;
I've seen her so many, many times,
This rose she would caress.

The half moon necklace that she gave to you,
She wanted you to wear;
To always treasure and cherish this gift,
And you've proven this with your care.

You always remembered her sweetly,
With calls and cards and gifts;
You always found the time to visit her,
Which gave her such a lift.

We'll see her again one day,
For we've been promised this;
You'll give her the single rose again,
And on her cheek you'll place your kiss.

You were the perfect Granddaughter,
You made her feel so great;
"The Apple of Grandma's Eye" you are,
As she waits patiently by heaven's gate.
