A birthday poem for my Grandmother

It was my Grandmothers birthday a few weeks ago, she was ** years old. I got the train up back home to celebrate with her. For her birthday, as I felt that something personal was more suitable than a bought present from her grandson, I wrote her a poem.

You held me,
Hours old, your first grandchild.
You protected me from electrified fridges,
And helped steer me true.

Many influence along the way,
But I think some of my best bits,
However many there may be,
Originate from you.

A grandmother, a mother,
Who has led a family
With strength, a hug and a comforting smile.

I say to you today,
Because it will always be a today when you read this,
I love you and thank you.

Me and Nanny
