A Grandmother’s Promise

Lorraine Simpson, Amarine’s Grandmother

Dedicated to my grandmother, Lorraine Simpson.
May she rest in peace – but I know she’s still watching over me…

A Grandmother’s Promise

A grandmother’s promise
To always be there,
To watch and care and love,

Is carried out long,
even after she’s gone,
As she watches from above.

She knows each mistake;
the chances you take,
But she never stops her cheering;

For each time you fall,
Not one time, but all,
Is a lesson not for fearing.

She spreads out her wings,
At times even sings,
In the hopes that your heart will hear,

And take strength from it,
Become inner-lit,
For to her, you are that dear.

You should never forget
How you two used to sit,
And she’d tell you all her stories,

For she’s never left;
You’re not so bereft,
And she revels in your glories.

~Amarine Rose Ravenwood
