Dear Mom (Grandma) ….
I thought of you with love today,
But that is nothing new.
I thought about you yesterday,
And the days before that too.
I think about you in silence,
I often speak your name.
All I have are my memories,
And your picture in a frame.
Your memory is my keepsake,
With which I’ll never part.
God has you in his keeping,
I have you in my heart.
