For Example: love, art, fashion, friendship and etc.

Back to oblivion

A sweet lady, tough and fearless,
Narrating stories that carries great lesson;
Always keeping track of my happiness,
My grandmother is indeed a grand old woman.

Rising seven children with brilliance,
Herding twelve grandchildren like a Goddess;
Rejoicing at our collective achievements,
She led a life commanding happiness.

And then struck that sinister disease,
Confining her to the bed forever quiet;
Hunger, thirst and all survival necessities,
Deserted her during that ultimate fight.

Battling challenges that life did pose,
Into the heavenly abode she did rose.

    Death is ofcourse a natural process that we are all to undergo...it is just that great life lived the way by a human...your grand-mother was an exemplary one to leave behind tha values of herself and the joint-family concept...lovely poem

    forever quiet never silent, not with I'm sure the many people she touched in her life...a wise grand lady indeed.
