To My Grandmother

I sit thoughtfully in the arms of this woman
Strong and brave, a real fighter for her age
She has such a big heart, gentle and kind
Her heart knows no limits, has no bounds

With her eyes, she’s seen so much hurt
From deaths in our family, long and old
To the evils of our society we let live
Wise and gentle, she provides for us

To the people of the past and to the future
She gives all her hopes and dreams
To those who will listen and care
Her utmost respect, she deserves so much more

From a distance, she makes her presence known
A wild and fun-filled woman, she knows
From old age, she’s often silly and fun
But she knows, she knows

A woman I have yet to really know
But have known for so long
She has so many secrets, so many stories
Her life in the world has yet to cease

She is a caring friend, loving for sure
She is a parent, supportive all the way
She is a guardian to many people
But most importantly,
She is my grandmother, strong and pure

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
