A Child Blossomed

A Child Blossomed

I saw in your face a valley of love
Spreading as spiderwort smiling above.

I felt your devotion and saw your grace.
Oh, calming influence amid life’s place.

When sadness came near you wiped away tears.
Freely helping throughout many long years.

The strength of your memory in my heart,
Grants me the courage for each day’s new start.

A child in your hands blossomed in these lands.
Where the mountain slopes meet the oceans sands.

Wherever I go, I know you are near.
Watching from heaven, grandmother dear.

Knowing how much your grandmother's influence has guided you all these years, this poem touched my heart. Like you, I can still feel the influence of my mother who died 27 years ago yesterday. She and your grandmother are watching over us and will always have special places in our hearts. Much love, Carolyn
