I see her in the sunlight

Grandma Bertie” I see her in the sunlight On a bright, clear, day I see her milking cows on A farm in her younger days, I see her in the sunlight In her kitchen making bread, Chasing 17 children who’s All wanting to be fed. I see her in the sunlight With the church doors open wide I can hear her singing hymns Like the sweet by and by I see her in the sunlight with Grandpa Alston by her side. Their hair is turning grey now With lots of Grandchildren About 105 I see her in the sunlight at Her home on Butterbean Ridge She took in a dog named Racheal, And was really glad she did I see her in the sunlight sitting Alone in her rocking chair Grandpa Alston passed away now, It’s been about 6 years. I see her in the sunlight feeling Tired and all worn out. She say’s My children, I feel soon I’ll no Longer be about. I see her in the sunlight. Again The church doors open wide. Her Sons are carrying their mother Through the church doors one Last time. I see her in the sunlight with a Heavenly Glo on her face. She says if anyone to join me, God’s Path they must take I’ll always see her in the sunlight, On a bright or cloudy, in the Wind,snow or rain. She’ll Always be in my Heart to stay. 11/96 by charlotte newman Written for my Grandma who passed away
