"The Greatest Grandma"
By Avery Mixon
You are someone who is dear to my heart,
You're more than my grandma and that's a big part.
Your smile is the first thing that I see,
When you're over the stove making breakfast from me.
The squeeze of your hugs are a perfect fit,
It warms my heart more than a little bit.
Your eyes are kind and hazelnut brown,
And you can always turn my frown upside down.
A kiss from you Grandma is precious you know,
It brings memories each year i grow.
The time we share will never go away,
It's tucked away in my heart and there it will stay.
My mom and dad are very special, too.
But there is no one who compares to you.
