She Was A Great And Grand Lady - Poem by jJO CAREY

She was a lady, a beautiful lady
A wife, a mother and grandmother, great grandmother & friend
She was gentle and kind and patient
And was loved by so many

And a few days ago, God called her to her heavenly home
To be with Him and all his other angels
Of whom she knew so many
All waiting to greet her with joy

We loved her in so many ways
That mere words cannot convey
We cry our tears, some outwardly, some from just inside
But we do cry all of us because we loved her so

Her gentle ways, her quiet words and the beauty of her soul
And her love of God and how she showed you in every way
In her every action how much she cared
For God and for you, whom ever you might be

Son, daughters, friends, every member of her family
How good and kind she always was
She made you smile when you wanted to frown
She made you happy just to be with her

I loved her. we each, and everyone she knew loved her
And God above in his glorious Home
Has taken her in his arms and carried her Himself
Into his host of angels waiting just for her.

She will be another angel working in her flowers
And working in all our hearts
To let us know how much she still loves us
Each and everyone and in our hearts we'll know

That she's always here, always loving, always smiling
Always with us everyday.in everyway
And our hearts will smile and realize that
She's only a heartbeat, only a thought away
