The Rose


Smooth brown skin
Long grey hair
A rounded face
No wrinkles there

A golden smile
A sweet embrace
Down on the knees
Her favourite place

Full of wisdom
Never a frown
A woman of faith
Always around

Life’s survivor
Fought to the end
Lover of God
My best friend

In her life
She gave her best
Till God took grandma
To her rest
