TRIBUTE TO MY GRANDMOM
"I carry your heart with me (I carry it in my heart)I am never without it"
by E.E. Cummings
Instilled with your genes
my heart bears blest heritage
legacy of reigning love
passed to my dear Mom
still prevailing by God’s grace
imparted, nurtured to breed.
Thanks so much, Lola*
dear grandmother, for your life
marked by care-share-give wonders
reaching now to me
toward blooming kindness’ deeds
while I serve, exalting** Christ.
*Lola-our country’s term of endearment for a grandmother
**Psalm 34:3 O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together.
