I’m made to hold your hopes and dreams,
Of years to come, so far they seem,
And yet with love from all around,
The years pass quickly, I have found.

Fill me full with love and wishes,
Blankets, coats, and pretty dishes,
And all the things that mean so much,
Like notes and secrets, letters and such.

Keep me clean, and keep me glossy,
Let my natural beauty shine,
Take care of me and I’ll protect
Your loving treasures without neglect.

Until each happy dream comes true,
They’ll be here waiting just for you.
Display me proudly for all to see,
In Grandma’s loving memory
