The Great One

This poem (first in years) is dedicated to my Nana.

There was this great woman I knew.
She was faithful honest & true.
She was little in stature, but that didn't matter she'd knock
you down in two.

She was like a mother you see.
Raising all kids cheerfully.
Not having any of her own,
she adopted 13 we've known.

In & out of her house they've come.
To live, to visit or to float.
She never turned away family in need.

She was a mother indeed.

This great woman has since passed away,
but her legacy remains here to stay!

I love you Nana!  We miss you.

Yarhamukallaah (May God have mercy upon you)
