A bright fire glowing in the grate,
Scones and cakes piled on a plate,
A cheery smile, a warm embrace,
Oh how I loved her lovely face.
She was there, when I was small,
As a teenager who knew it all,
Many a night she sat up late
waiting for me to come through the gate.
She listened to stories I had to tell,
And her advice I knew so well,
Remembering how she was filled with pride,
the day that I became a bride.
When my babies came along
She soothed them all with her song,
and spent many a very happy day,
watching the little ones at play.
My Children now have ones of their own,
and Granny has gone to her heavenly home,
But the love and truth I learned at her side,
Will always forever with me abide.
