A Piece Dedicated To My Late Grandma
Who lived a worthy life
A mother who always loved and cared
A grandma who taught us to love one another
These are the legacies; from you
You taught us how to fight you gave us strength, you gave us might
You taught us to be brave and overcome fright
You taught us to pray; even at night
Memories of you will be forever engraved in our hearts and minds.
Not just a wife, not just a mother you fought for us all in one way or the other
You fought a good fight even as our grandmother.
For us all you gave the best
Sleep on, sleep on and take your rest!
In my heart of hearts i do hear a voice; calling out aloud REJOICE!
And ye remember me when I'm gone away.
Be united as ever and be one family
Remember me when I'm gone into the silent land
A place where you could no longer touch me nor hold my hand
Kindly remember me day by day
And with you I will always stay.
We love you but God loves you best
Sleep on and take your rest!
Let sweet memories of you surround us
With a word or phrase someone may say might recapture a time, an hour or a day
A word or phrase that will seem to bring her back clearly as though she was here and fill us with the feelings that she's always near
Grandma, Sisi Yeabu Conteh
Sleep now and let thy golden hearts rest
Although our hearts are broken we know God took the best
Sleep on, Sleep on and take your rest!
