Slender stature, about 5 foot-four

Smiles flashing love to every child

Twinkling eyes, probing each heart

Hands nursing many a child’s hurt

.

Arms protecting little ones from harm

Vibrant aprons holding treats to eat

Baking the finest filled cookies about

Doting time for grandchildren at play

.

Nurturing interest in outdoor fun

Discovering those lucky 4-leaf clovers

Picking lilacs and planting those pansies

Joyfully sharing her cherished antique dolls

.

Letting grandchildren help with chores

Always dressed prim, proper and clean

Truly loved her family and they knew it–

.

This was my gramma and mighty protector

Thank you Lord for such a rich treasure

God’s angel in disguise and homeward bound

Far too early–I still lament her passing.
