Long Distance Call on the phone today,
she said she had something quite dear to say.
A weight in her heart when she went away
so she's sending some love here from Grandma

She only intended warmth for me,
but burned me when giving so selflessly.
And that's why she's sending me rolls and tea,
this time, with no pain from Grandma

No need to apologize
when I see only love in your eyes.
And how could I ever resent
when I've always held close the sentiment?

Grandma, I'll always remember you.
I miss you but know I'll be with you soon.
And give my regards to Grandpa too.
He's lucky to be with you, Grandma.
He's loving this lovin' from Grandma
