MY GRANNY'S LAST GIFT
by
© John G. Sutton

My Granny passed away last year
At the time I felt right sad
She'd always been a proper pal
Just to see her made me glad.

I shan't forget her happy smile
That open friendly grin
And all my friends they liked her too
When she passed, it did me in.

I won't forget her funeral
Half the town came out and cried
The church was full and people lined
The streets From side to side

Then when the lawyer read her will
Well I really filled with pride
He handed me a little box
From she who had just died

I took it home to open it
On the top it said 'With Love'
A last treat from my Granny
Now at peace in Heaven above

To think that she had thought of me
I pressed it to my chest
And wondered what she'd left me
Now she'd gone to her final rest

A little tear came in my eye
As I opened her last treat
And then I saw them smiling there
Looking all clean and neat

Now I'll never forget her happy smile
With her heart of gold beneath
And I'll think of her every time I see
My Granny's old false teeth!
