From One Teardrop to a Million


Everytime I walk into the room, I try to ignore the fact that she's in pain.

As she groans from the agony, I began to get a bit teary-eyed and walk away.

Lord, I love my grandmother so dearly so the only thing I can do is pray.

I cannot imagine how life would be without her.

She's the strongest woman I've ever met

and I hate to see her lying down in the casket because then it'll be over...

All of my dreams,

All of my joy will be over!

God, you're the center of my joy

but she's what helps me remember that.

There's so much I need her to see before she leaves here.

need her to stick around to see my children and my children's children.

I want her to live to see me well-educated and following my dreams.

I want her to live to see that all of her labor was not in vain.

She's the best thing that's ever happened to me.

I cannot stand to think of her gone from me.

When I needed a shoulder to lean on, she was there. 

Not only did she let me lean on her shoulder but she let me cry on it too!

She helps turn my skies from grey to blue!

When I had a question, she would always provide the answers.

It feels like she knows the answer to everything

and if she doesn't... she sure make it sound good.

She worries about me instead of her problems.

That's just the type of person she is.

My beautiful flower blossom!
