Oh, I Know Her as a Giver

Oh, I know her as a giver
We don’t give her enough credit
But I find it true indeed that she truly is a giver

What shall I deliver?
That we trully need a mirror?
Yes indeed, indeed we do
Perhaps we need to see clearer

She truly is a giver but one that is human
Human enough to be selfish while giving those around her gifts
At least she’s sweet to me, call me spoiled, bribed and naive
But I see a side different that I could truly admire

The most amazing thing is that she doesn’t have anyone as a peer
She sits alone and thinks alone and yet doesn’t have any fear
I’d hate it. I’d loath ’till the heart within me sheds tears
I don’t know where she finds the patience to be here

Once again, she sits today not thinking of what is coming near
Within her is a strength that we’ve never seen appear
Once stubborn and once closed she pursues another frontier
Without even leaving her chair and not expressing any need for cheer

Oh, I know her as a giver
We don’t give her enough credit for it
But I find it true indeed that she truly is a giver

Born into a poor family she became incredibly tough skinned
and from that raised her family in a very similar way
It pushed some away and in strange ways brought some closer
And now there’s more to her family that allows them to flourish
But despite all of this she still remains alone.
Some hobbies and some friends while waiting hopefully at the phone
Maybe today somebody will giver her a call which allows her be happy like a shot of euphoria to that sharp witted brain.
But let us never forget while she is still here that she is nothing to us that she is the greatest giver
Once selfish, now selfless, she sits all alone only giving and giving
and that is why I love her, my nearest and dearest Grandma

Oh, I know her as a giver
We don’t give her enough credit for it
But I find it true indeed that she truly is a giver
