but she was

so much more 


she taught me

how to love 

and to be loved

to be kind

learn as much as you can

laugh, for it is the best medicine 

tell stories 

for they are a part of you

its okay to be wrong 

but make it right 


she raised me to be 

the kind

caring, funny 

strong Finnish

and Ojibway women

I am today 


I will forever 

admire a small

stubbornly sweet

Finnish women 

who always knew

how to make me smile 


Miigwech Nokomis

For always being there

for cheering me up

for being my support 

through the sunshine

and storms 


there is a thousand ways 

she helped me 

become who I am 

I will thank her 

Chii Miigwich

my dear beloved grandmother 

Kiitos Isoäiti 

I thank you 

in my three tongues
