Biography of Patricia Grantham

I have been writing poetry for over twenty years now. This collection of poems hopefully will inspire, encourage or uplift someone in their daily walk with life and that you will have an enriching and rewarding experience after reading them. I have also written poetry locally for family and friends. A poem titled A Land So Fair was printed on an obituary. Another titled My Quiet Corner was posted in a local newspaper over fifteen years ago and was also selected to appear in Mirrors of The Soul edition through the Modern Poetry Society in 1995. Numerous poems have also been recited at family reunions, social gatherings and various church functions. Additional poems titled A Faithful Friend(selected twice) , If I Could Fly and No Room For Hate(which was also selected as an International poem) were named as Poems of the Day.

Philosophies in life are: Love of God, Fellowman and Preservation of Family. Hobbies are reading, listening to music, singing, writing lyrics for music, spending time with family & friends and taking long walks.

Special interests are: tutoring, mentoring, motivational speaking, volunteering and by all means writing poetry.

Many heartfelt thanks to all of you for taking time out of your busy schedules to read some of my works.

Number One Mother

She is number one
She is my mother
My one and only
Not like any other

A woman of strength
Just like the lovely rose
A special gift from God
You wouldn't dare to oppose
