Good morning readers!

So today is my grandmother’s 69th birthday (even though she doesn’t look over the age of 30 *wink*)! In honor of her birthday I’m posting my second attempt at a poem, something I wrote back in 2012 just for her. It isn’t the grandest, despite numerous tweaks, but it holds an important place in my heart and hers. Without my grandmother I wouldn’t have gotten as far as I am today. She is my rock.

This is a shout out to her to have a great day and remember that despite our fights I won’t ever forget what she has done for me.

Lots of love –

Rae

Their Grandmother’s Love

One birth, two births,

another makes three.

All additions to a single family.

Three prized girls,

r a n g i n g in age –

all                    equally

completely

experiencing

feeling

enjoying

Their grandmother’s love.

There are fights and arguments

over pointless things.

Hurt

Anger

 Love

to become a mixture of

emotion.

There are tears and screams,

moans and groans,

but nothing can change the truth,

there is always

Their grandmother’s love.

Year after year p a s s by,

The girls

g

r

o

w

to become

individuals.

Each has her own –

strengths

&

weaknesses.

Each will become her own person,

Go her own

way

always knowing they have

Their grandmother’s love.
