Misunderstood

Once 
Grandmother rubbed her back and listened to all her
Little woes

Like how
Her big boy cousins
Stepped on all her dolly's toes

Once
Grandmother guided little girl
Through the hazards and pain of the great wide world

Like how
To make too straight hair
Look perfect curled

Once 
Grandmother lived right downstairs
Waiting with open arms and a heart that cared

Now
Grandmother in Heaven
Waiting for her little girl and little girl is all grown up and scared.
