There's Something About My Grandma

By Marilyn Ashworth September 1993



There's something about my Grandma

Her last name is Cook-e

With twinkling eyes and pure white hair

And smile from sea to sea



There's something about my Grandma

She's a Newfie girl you see

She smiled at the world

and the world smiled back

She could've taught Dale Carneige



There's something about my Grandma

She ran the Salvation Army Leauge

And Stitch 'n Chat and Ayre & Sons

And raised her Family



There's something about my Grandma

She'd say of Art, to me

He was the best; You missed a lot

He was kind and Oh, so funny!



There's something about my Grandma

She continued carefully

That when Art died,

Rupe, his true best friend

Too such good care of me



There's something about my Grandma

That's locked deep in my memory

She grieved two men and when Rupe died

She cried only with Margaret and me.



There's something about my Grandma

Our transplanted sweet Newfie

She had a language of her own

"I'll be Jiggered", that's a new one on me



There's something about my Grandma

She lost her memory

"My mom was just like this."

She'd tell me, very quietly



There's something about my Grandma

She'd greet us with childish glee

"Well look who's here!", she'd always say

Searching her memory



There's something about my Grandma

Known best to Donna and me

She worried about, what her mom would think

Till she was darn near 93!



There's something about my Grandma

When she'd say goodbye to me

"Come again, any ole time!" or

"Won't you stay for tea?"



For Grandma's are forever

In a forever family

Their loving kindness, helps to bind us

Together, through all eternity.
