Little Old Lady

She is a tired old lady wondering how
Life has been good to her somehow
A marriage and children all thrown in
It appears her life has been win win

She looks at the photograph of him
As she remembers him tall and slim
She sees herself young with shapely hips
Remembers how love, sparkled in her eyes and danced on her lips

He died years ago and left her alone
She worked with her children until they had grown
Although they all married and had to move on
They never forgot her, not even a one

The grandchildren call by for tea with their gran
She brags about them their number one fan
So all in all she has had a good life
She managed to be a good mother and wife

When finally she passes they all will grieve
For the love they have lost and cannot retrieve
In memories they'll find her in every place
For now they still see love, etched upon her face
