Your spirit overflowed us all, much like the holy spirit as you took your last breath.

Out was the sunset , weather warm and welcoming,

 Much like your love 

Granny, you were a modest goddess 

And till the end you were a fighter

A lover till the end 

A mother till the end. 

Granny, your spirit continues to overflow me, 

I could only hope to fill your shoes one day. 

My memories of you is so much like a love story,

That I could write a whole book that wouldn’t cover the magnitude of your greatness.  

Your name means “bright shining light”

And that’s what you were for so many. 

Granny, without you the world has no color, no meaning 

But I will paint the colors of the world in remembrance of you 

I will dance and shout your name.  

Granny, your spirit has overflowed me, much like your love 

And I could only hope to fill your shoes 

I aspire to be just like you. 

Dear, dear granny you were my light 

My fight 

My birthright 

You where the reason why I took flight and skyrocketed into my dreams 

And it seems that your spirit will continue to overflow me 

Over joy me 

Over indulge me 

Your spirit will be with me 

Overflow me 

Much like your love. 

And till the end you were a fighter

A lover till the end 

A mother till the end. 

Granny, you were like no other 

And no other was like you.
