A mom’s mom
Queen of our house
Keeping us together
Through sun and cloud

Quick to listen
Strong in the test
She knows our heartaches
And loves us best

Each one of the children
Were molded by her
A model of strength
Opportunity to grow

Never a whimper
In the face of great pain
She stood up to death
Remaining the same

A rock, a shield
Our home is her rule
A sanctuary of peace
Joy from her cool

I love this woman
Almost forty years
I am enabled
Because she gives

She gives of her wisdom
Guides from the Lord
I am grateful
For our gift from the Lord
