I like to walk with Grandma,
Her steps are short like mine.
She never says, “Now hurry up!”
She always takes her time.

I like to walk with Grandma.
Her eyes see things like mine do.
Wee pebbles bright, a funny cloud,
Half hidden drop of dew.

Most people have to hurry,
They do not stop to see.
I’m so glad that God made Grandma
Unrushed and young like me.

Grandmas are for stories
about things of long ago.

Grandmas are for caring
about all the things you know...

Grandmas are for rocking you
and singing you to sleep.

Grandmas are for giving you
nice memories to keep...

Grandmas are for knowing
all the things you're dreaming of...

But, most importantly of all,
Grandmas are for love.
