A Poem to My grandmother (Beauty)
I remember you on this day. As the person who loved me, and kept me strong when everything else seemed to go astray.
As I raise my kids, with both hope and fears, I remember the impact that you lay upon me those first nine years.
You kept me strong, when much could have gone wrong. You taught me to walk – actually to run straight, down my own path.
It’s only been a year but I still keep listening to hear... oh how I miss your laugh.
I saw you this day, just last year, and for some reason I thought you would always be here, despite your ninety-six years.
You did your work and moved on. I will never forget all those days, my first nine years.
I love you always.
