My Grandma has 8 children, 20 grandchildren, and about 17 great grandchildren, and yet she always makes time for each and ever one of us.

Dedicated to my wonderful grandma, I love you and will always remember those hot buttered yeast biscuits everyone likes so well.

Biscuits Of Love
Memories of my youth.
Flood over my soul.
When I think of Grandma.
They make me feel whole.
Gathering at her house.
With all the family there.
We made lots of memories.
For all of us to share.

Lessons that she taught me.
Guide me thru the day.
If I listened closely.
I cannot go astray.
Love and commitment.
She drilled into me.
Making the person that I am.
Just who I want to be.

Grandma has many names.
Each one has their chosen.
But the names I want her called
Starts with love,
For she is warm and not frozen.

    I love your Biscuits of Love poem. Whenever my family gets together and discuss memories of my mother, the first thing that comes to mind is her buscuits which were always made with love. Thank you

    This is a wonderful poem that expresses a universalness about grandmothers. It is a great poem.

    It just reminded me of my Mother, who lived to be 100 years old, and taught me things that I would never had learned without her wisdom and knowledge.

    I really love your poem. I lost my Grandma 3 years ago, and she was not only my grandma, but my inspiration, my hope, and the person I want to become. She has 7 children also. My Grandma made my life such a happier place. She was seriously sent down from God to grace everyone's presence that she ever met. I will always miss her, and I will always love her. But, one day, we will meet again!
