Grandma's Prayer

Granddaughters are Gods special gift
To let every grandma know
That the Lord has set aside a special prayer
For when you’re feeling low.

I’m not sure if I have all the words
But they came straight from Gods heart
To let each Grandma always know
They’re loved right from the start.

Dear Grandma when I awoke today
And saw that great big sun
I knew you put it in the sky
So we could go out and have some fun.

And when I heard the robins sing
And listened to their happy tune
I remembered how you sing me to sleep
I hope you show up soon.

And when I saw that yellow butterfly
Land upon my window sill
The beauty I saw in front of me
Reminded me of Grandma, I know it always will.

I got up then and knelt and prayed
To our Lord Jesus in the sky
I thanked Him for all these beautiful things
But I had one more prayer before I said goodbye.

Dear God, when you see Grandma
Send an angel to keep her safe from harm
Then send her here to play with me
I feel safe inside her arms.
