Using Grandparents' Day Poems
Using special grandparents poems is a unique way to show gratitude and love as well as being a meaningful gesture. There are many poems written that reflect appreciation towards grandparents and express sentiments of appreciation that often remain unsaid. A poem can sum up your emotions and can either be recited or used as part of a gift.
Giving someone a special poem written just for them is something that they will never forget. If you plan on reciting the poem, be sure to give a copy to your grandparents afterwards so that they can cherish it for years to come. They may even want to share the poem with their friends.

- Writing a poem inside of a blank card
- Engraving a poem on a plaque
- Using one as the first page of a scrapbook dedicated to the grandparent(s)

If you are at a loss for words and need some help coming up with a meaningful poem, consider using a poem that has already been written. There are many sites online that have great selections of poems from which to choose. Check out the following sites for Grandparents' Day poems:
If you are creative, you can always write your own poem. If you don't know where to start why not write a phrase for every letter in the word 'Grandparent'. For example, G is for Generosity, R is for Respect, A is for Always being there, N is for Nice and so on. When writing a poem such as this, be sure to use what is personal and dear to you and your grandparent.
Another option is to put a personal twist on a poem that has already been written. Remember to write from your heart. No matter what the poem ends up like, it sure to be appreciated since it is a gesture coming from you. Special gifts such as poems are loved not only because of the content, but because they are written with the recipient in mind. Poems express what is felt but often left unsaid. Show your grandparent how much you care about them with a poem written especially for them.
