Dedicated to the Life, Legacy and Celebration of my Grandmother's Birthday



Dear Grandmother
©2009 Syneeda Penland

I recall as a little girl
you taught me right from wrong.
Your words of wisdom stood steadfast
like a cadence guiding me along.

When I traveled
through many hills and valleys
my temperament stood strong,
I never fell out of step
as I danced to the rhythm
of your sweet song.

Righteousness
is what you taught me,
to never compromise my values
just to get along.

Even at the final hour
of my misfortune,
I felt you in my spirit,
I was never alone.
