My granny wears her heart on her sleeve
Her love pure
I’ve never seen my granny in a fit of anger or evil
I sometimes wonder how she is so full of light.
Did she never know pain?
No, that can’t be it;
Her husband of 50+ years died just two years ago.
Did she never know the feeling of betrayal?
Her own mother set fire to her childhood home while she was in it. She was only 4.
Did she never know hard times?
She left all her friends, family and home in Texas in search of a better opportunity at GM.
Yet she still shines brighter than the north star in the dark night
I sometimes wonder if she knows that she lights up my life
