A Grandmother's Love

We came, we saw, we conquered


We loved, we learned, we lived


We wrote a story for us

Alas, our time is up

This chapter is done,

but your book is far from over

you'll see, you'll bee, you'll dream

I'm so happy to have seen

Someone grow up to be like you



Goodbye isn't forever

We'll still know one another,

but I cannot hold you back

you must breathe

and be free

to be




"Go forth and conquer"

is the message I leave

to be in your heart

Along with me
