To one who bears the sweetest name

And adds luster to the same

Long Life to her,

For there is no other,

Who takes the place of my Dear Mother


Her arms are always open wide

To welcome you with love

Her smile is brighter than the stars

That sparkle high above

She listens without judgement

She takes the time to share

God bless this dear Grandmother

And hold her in Your care.
