A Tribute to Grandparents Raising Their Grandparents by Rolanda T. Pyle

Thank you

We gather here to celebrate you for all you’ve done

For caring for your granddaughter and your grandson

You took on this awesome task that no one else could do,

Because no one loves and cares

for your grandchild quite like you.

You had the courage to start all over again

Raising your grandchildren at an age when

You thought you might retire, travel and rest

But the children needed caregivers,

and they needed the best.

Some came to you in pampers and most in tears

Needing nurturing and someone who cares.

Others came as toddlers, exploring the world on the run

You couldn’t believe this happened –

after you thought that you were done.

Still others came at school age,

when they needed guidance and direction

Science may have you baffled but

you are great at giving affection.

And some of you have teenagers, oh my, what can I say.

Just keep reminding yourself

that they won’t stay this way.

We know it has not been easy – often quite a heavy load

And there have been many bumps along the road

You’ve been misunderstood, labeled

and denied the services you need

Often criticized and not recognized for your labor

or your good deed.

But we are here to honor you who have done so much

To change the lives of children with your special touch

We thank you grandparents: we thank you once,

we thank you twice

And know you are appreciated for the rest of your life.

Thank you, grandparents.
