Ode to my grandmother

Keep your head up high, don't ever stop reaching, reaching for the sky.

Keep moving, smiling, and living. I have fond memories, memories of your unselfish giving.

You have greatly inspired my life with your unparalled strength and pride. Your life lessons and experiences have always been my guide.

Your strength is what preserved you over the many years, your fortitude is what helped soothe all your wearied tears.

Yes, life has thrown many foul balls your way. Yet your inner soul, your inner soul you never let it sway.

You I admire and always always will. For you are my beloved grandmother, a grandmother very active still.
