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 was printed on an obituary. Another titled " My Quiet Corner" was posted in a local newspaper over fifteen years ago and was also selected to appear in Mirrors of The Soul edition through the Modern Poetry Society in 1995. Numerous poems have also been recited at family reunions, social gatherings and various church functions. Additional poems titled A Faithful Friend(selected twice) , If I Could Fly and No Room For Hate(which was also selected as an International poem) were named as Poems of the Day.
Another poem titled " Stay in School" was printed in a
class reunion booklet.

Philosophies in life are: Love of God, Fellowman and Preservation of Family. Hobbies are reading, listening to music, singing, writing lyrics for music, spending time with family & friends and taking long walks.
Special interests are: tutoring, mentoring, motivator, volunteering and by all means writing poetry.
Many heartfelt thanks to all of you for taking time out of your busy schedules to read some of my works.

A Memorial

Risked their lives to protect and defend
Separation from family took time to mend
Walked on mine fields, waded through waters
Left behind many wives, sons and daughters

Fought for our country to keep it free
All are the heroes who died for you and me
Some battles was lost and others were won
Toiling until the rising and setting of the sun
