Grandma´s Shoes
~ by Betty Cessna ~

When I was very little
All the Grandmas that I knew
Were wearing the same kind
Of ugly grandma shoes..

You know the kind I mean..
Clunky heeled, black, lace-up kind,
They just looked so very awful
That it weighed upon my mind,

For I knew, when I grew old.
I'd have to wear those shoes,
I'd think of that, from time to time
It seemed like such bad news.

I never was a rebel,
I wore saddle shoes to school,
And next came ballerinas
Then the sandals, pretty cool.

And then came spikes with pointed toes
Then platforms, very tall,
As each new fashion came along
I wore them, one and all.

But always, in the distance,
Looming in my future, there,
Was that awful pair of ugly shoes,
The kind that Grandmas wear,

I eventually got married
And then I became a Mom
Our kids grew up and left,
And when their children came along,

I knew I was a Grandma
And the time was drawing near
When those clunky, black, old lace up shoes
Was what I'd have to wear.

How would I do my gardening
Or take my morning hike?
I couldn't even think about
How I would ride my bike!

But fashions kept evolving
And one day I realized
That the shape of things to come
Was changing, right before my eyes.

And now, when I go shopping
What I see, fills me with glee
For, in my jeans and Reeboks
I'm as comfy as can be.

And I look at all these little girls
And there, upon their feet
Are clunky, black, old Grandma shoes,
And I really think that's neat.


What is a Baby?


A baby is someone to hold in your arms

and someone so cute and full of charm.

Someone to plan the future for;

it's someone to love and adore.


It's someone to call your very own

who'll turn your house into a home.

Instead of two they'll be three--

and that makes a family!


Someone to keep you up at night

and somone who will sometimes fight.

Someone who'll get sick and cry

but for that someone you would die.


What is a baby?


A baby's full of wiggles and life,

but will sometime cause lots of strife.

Your life will be changed forever

but it's by far life's greatest endeavor.


Frazzeled nerves that come undone,

it's a lot of work and not just fun.

But it's a bond that's like no other,

the strongest love between child and mother!


So as I watch you become a mother,

I may offer advice but promise not to hover.

A girl or boy it doesn't matter

for soon little feet will "pitter patter."


What is a baby?

All of this and more.

A bundle of joy to

love and adore!!


Written by Dianna Wilder for her daughter



To the Baby on the Way

To the one we love so much,
we cannot wait to feel your touch.
To hear your laughs, to see your smiles,
will help us through the many miles.

We look at you so small and frail,
and hope as parents not to fail.
We'll try our best to do what's right,
to show our love and never fight

Our hearts will fill with many fears,
our eyes wiill fill with many tears,
as you grow through out the years,
and the diminishing time we spend together nears.

Though all of life will turn and bend,
our love for you will never end.
These words are written with our love,
to our blessing sent from above.

Love Mom and Dad

We must know that we have been
created for greater things,
not just to be a number in the world.
We have been created in order
to love and to be loved.

Baby Shower Thank You

I'm sorry I can't be with you,
But I'm very busy you see,
Painting my eyes, my cheeks, my hair,
So mother will be proud of me.

I'm sending this little message,
To convey to you this thought,
The Stork will soon have left me,
To use the gifts you brought.

Be sure to come and see me,
As soon as I get here,
Just give mother time,
To dress me ever so dear.

And so I Thank You from my heart,
For each lovely gift for me,
For when the Stork leaves me with mother,
I'll not be dressed you see.

Little Baby

Since The Very First Day

 Since the very first day

I found out about you,

My entire life changed

I had so much to do.


Since the very first day

I dreamed day and night.

Would you resemble me?

What would you be like?


Since the very first day

I saw you on a scan

I thought about your future

As a woman or man.


Since the very first day

I knew we'd eventually meet

Seeing you on 9/28

Was such an awesome treat.


Since the very first day

I held you in my arms,

Your eyes melted my heart

I vowed to keep you from harm.


Since the very first day

I nourished you with milk,

Your hands so tiny

Your hair smooth as silk.


Since the very first day

I chose your name "Phoenix"

I knew it was my life

That you would soon fix.


Since the very first day

You grasped my finger in your hand

Life has zoomed by

Like an hourglass' sand.


Since the very first day

The nine months began

I lived for the day

That I could hold your hand.


Since the very first day

I knew someday you'd leave

Whenever that day comes

In my heart I'll grieve


Since the very first day

This I can tell you is true

There is no greater love

Than the love I have for you.

Blessed by God
A dream come true
Born into the world
You are so new

Given to me, your finaly here
In my womb, a sweet angel, so perfectly near
Realizing now that we are two
Love brought us together Baby Girl & mommy welcomes you

I found this poem that my father had written for my sisters and my brother and me. He wrote it almost thirty years
ago - I thought it would be great for your web site.
This poem means a lot to me since
he wrote it at Christmas time.


Ungiveable presents

~ Ronald Koch 1935-1986 ~

How excited you kids were

as from present to present you shook

you could hardly wait for Christmas

when you could have a look.


I couldn't help but think of things

that one can't buy or wrap

maybe i'm just getting old

it's called a generation gap.


There are so many things

that I'd like to give

like advice that you could use

as your life to live.


I'd like you to have patience with me

when I loose me cool

and to get along with each other

I'd give the golden rule.


I'd like to give you awareness

of the beauties all around

the things we take for granted

the sun, the trees, the ground.


I'd like to wrap up my love

what a large package that would make

it would go with you

as steps through life you take.


I'd give you kind words and smiles

I'd give you a helping hand

there are so many things

that this life will demand.


In one box would be honesty

in still another fun

in still another good clean living

there's enough for everyone.


So kids just remember

the important gifts aren't there

just look around and you'll see

that they are everywhere!
