Poetry: Grandmother

Grandmother

You are

The bringer of light

The fixer of all pains

The philosopher filled with insight into the future

The historian filled with facts of great times past

You are

Graceful

Inspired

Beautiful

You are the reason my heartbeat is so strong

Why I take extra concern to treat others well

Why I always have mittens to protect myself from the cold

Why I am prepared if I find someone else lost and in need of warmth

Your insight stems from the heavens

Within the recesses of your soul are the key ingredients to perfection

There is no being who can compare

You taught me to be the best version of myself

Reinforcing my potential for greatness

Everything good in me came from you

My strength stems from being in your bloodline

Forever frozen in time

Immortalized in memories and photographs

Is a little girl who saw God in the eyes of her grandmother

That little girl grew up

The world changed

The one definite truth remained the same

In the eyes of her grandmother she still saw God

And all that was righteous and good in this world

Existed inside her grandmothers spirit

You changed the world

You filled it with love, light and hope

The world will be better because of you

Grandmother—you are my heart in human form

My idol

My muse

My angel

Now you can finally fly
