This week I would like to write a poem to pay homage to my Grandmother who sadly passed away last week after a long and eventful life. Now I have not written poetry in years, so I only hope I would not offend her with my lack of elegance. I only recently discovered that she was in fact a poet laureate, and a published poet.
My grandmother was a caring woman,
a wife, a mother, a friend.
With days of patience, and miles calm,
she carried with her until her end.
These traits live on through her family now,
through her children’s children, down the line.
For these gifts we give thanks, and remember you,
as our grandmother for all of time.

We love you Grandma, may you rest in peace.
