A truly loving woman, was exactly what she was
A giving , caring person - who always showed me love
Her arms were always safe, her embrace was always warm
She always let me know, I could come to her if torn

But her time on earth has passed, after 92 long years
She lives among the angels, while here I shed my tears
I know that she is happy now, for there is no more pain
I'd give anything to have her back, my head on her heart again

But death is just a part of life, of that she always said
Be strong, be faithful and believe, and to HIM you will be led

So now I look around my house, and touch familiar things
The table where she once served lunch, the box that held her rings
The bed that held her small feeble frame, right until the end
Upon which now my daughter sleeps - her namesake and best friend

I love you Grandma and always will - your heart was so pure
I only hope to live up to you, I'll try of that I'm sure
So when you're looking down on me, and give me a soft kiss
I'll know that it is an angels lips, for forever you'll be missed

A perfect way to remember your grandma, Spoongirl, and to give us a glimpse of the person she was.

But with autumn leaf she perish'd, long time ago..."

"Something sweet, something sort of grandish, sweeps my soul when thou art near..."
