An elderly angel in a deep sleep

4 score and six years ago,
You came into this world
without an inkling of the wisdom,
that lies here before

All of us whose lives you changed,
for better, or for better,
since worse we could never be,
we who knew you in youth and when you aged.

You looked after us all,
every moment of your life.
With a twinkle in your eye,
which only vanished when you lay there in your pall.

You were the source,
of all my morals and virtues.
You gave me my being,
without ever being hoarse.

Your oldest grandchild, spoke words loud and true
"They don't make humans like her anymore,"
I think I couldn't agree more,
No-one could replace you.

To everyone reading this,
there is nothing else to say
regarding my grandmom,
whom I cannot help but miss.
