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.

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.
