5) GRANDMA

I NEED TO LEARN, GRANDMA

I NEED YOU TO TEACH ME

I'LL FILL MY MEMORY BOX TO OVER FLOWING

WITH ALL THE LESSONS YOU'LL TEACH ME

THERE ARE STILL MORE TO LEARN FROM YOU

SO MANY LESSONS YET TO BE STARTED

LESSONS YET TO BE TOUCHED

I NEED TO LEARN, GRANDMA

I NEED YOU TO TEACH ME

I'LL FILL MY MEMORY BOX TO OVER FLOWING

WITH ALL THE LESSONS YOU'LL TEACH ME

YOU HAVE TO SEE ME GET MARRIED

YOU HAVE TO WAIT FOR MY CHILDREN

YOU HAVE TO SEE MY GRANDCHILDREN

YOU HAVE TO LOOK AFTER MY GREATGRANDCHILDREN

I NEED TO LEARN, GRANDMA

I NEED YOU TO TEACH ME

I'LL FILL MY MEMORY BOX TO OVER FLOWING

WITH ALL THE LESSONS YOU'LL TEACH ME


6) GRANDMA

YOU HAVE LIVED YOUR LIFE

IT HAS TAKEN YOU FOR A LONG TRIP

MORE THAN MOST PEOPLE COULD IMAGINE

LONGER THAN MOST OF US COULD THINK

YOU HAVE GONE THROUGH SO MUCH

AND STILL NOW, IN YOUR LAST HOUR

YOU STILL HAVE TO GO THROUGH A LOT MORE

I DON'T WANT YOU TO GO AND LEAVE US

BUT HAVE YOU NOT BEEN THROUGH ENOUGH

MUST YOU SUFFER THIS WAY

GO AND TAKE YOUR NAP

TAKE A LONG NAP, GO AND REST NOW

REST AND DREAM GOOD DREAMS


7) GRANDMA AND GRANDPA

YOU ARE THE PARENTS, I KNOW

I GREW UP AS YOUR CHILD

YOU HAVE TAKEN ME IN

WHEN NO ONE WANTED ME

YOU FED ME

YOU CLOTHE ME

YOU SHELTERED ME

YOU EDUCATED ME

I'M NOT COMPLETE

I'M NOT WHOLE

I'M A SHADOW OF MYSELF

I'M FRAGMENT OF A PIECE

YOU GAVE ME, AN EMBRACE

YOU GAVE ME, A KISS

YOU GAVE ME, PEACE

YOU GAVE ME, LOVE

YOU GAVE ME, ME


8) GRANDMA/GRANDPA

YOU ARE SO DIFFERENT FROM THE OLD YOU

YOU ARE A SHADOW OF THE OLD YOU

I DON'T RECOGNIZE THE NOW YOU

WHAT HAS BECOME OF YOU

COULD HARDLY STAND

COULD HARDLY TALK

COULD HARDLY EAT

COULD HARDLY SIT

ALL SKIN AND BONE


9) GRANDMA

HOW I REMEMBER THE OLD DAYS

WHEN YOU'LL TAKE TIME TO COOK

WHEN YOU'LL MAKE MY FAVORITE FOOD

WHEN I'LL BE COMING OVER FOR A VISIT

AND YOU'LL HAVE MY FAVORITE READY

EVERYTHING IS ARRANGED ON THE TABLE

EVERYTHING IS MADE READY FOR ME

YOU AND YOUR BIG SMILE

WITH YOUR OPEN ARMS

WITH YOUR WARM HUG

INVITING ME TO EAT
