Ode To Grandma

Ode to Grandma
My grandma is a rare treasure;
She has humility in great measure;
Higher her virtue;
More noble her nature.
She is a source of inspiration;
She opens minds with imagination;
She always yearns ‘for strong minds
And great hearts and ready hands.’
She constantly uplifts my mind;
She expands my thoughts;
She enlightens my vision;
She awakens my passion.
She implores future belongs to thee;
If you believe in dreams;
Now I have learned my lesson;
All I need is a driving ambition!
