Biography of Patricia Grantham

I have been writing poetry for over twenty years now. This collection of poems hopefully will inspire, encourage or uplift someone in their daily walk with life and that you will have an enriching and rewarding experience after reading them. I have also written poetry locally for family and friends. A poem titled A Land So Fair and Heaven Sent was printed on obituaries. Another titled " My Quiet Corner" was posted in a local newspaper over fifteen years ago and was also selected to appear in a Mirrors of The Soul edition with the Modern Poetry Society in 1995. Numerous poems have also been recited at family reunions, other social gatherings and at worship services. Additional poems titled A Faithful Friend(chosen twice) , If I Could Fly and No Room For Hate(which was also chosen as an International poem) were named as Poems of the Day.
Another poem titled " Stay in School" was printed in a
class reunion booklet.

Many heartfelt thanks to all of you for taking time out of your busy schedules to read some of my works.

Tear Drops

Into each of our lives a little tear must fall
This is a gift from God that is common to all
It cleanses the wounds of the troubled soul
When the burdens of life has taken its toll

If you have never had to shed a single tear
Then the beating heart will be hard to bear
The troubles of life brings on constant care
Remember theres a God who is always near
