My Grandma's Daughter

She wakes is the morning to see the sun rise 
nurturing flowers is how she passes her day 
Mothering is just her way 

It is a space so wide and small 
when you hear your mother call
Your name and life she gave you 
and your thanks is more then due 

Passion free from form 
And heart not of norm 
A kind gentle way 
That grows greater with each passing day

I hope to measure up 
Although i know i could not fail her 
It is her praise I seek 
With each and every week 

The days and weeks turn into years 
And its still her that takes away all my fears 
In only a minute I can be brought to tears 
At the thought of life without my grandma's daughter
