This woman
Deserves a standing ovation
So rise to your feet

I could never think of a better way
To thank her
For the trouble she has been through
With me

Going BEYOND the extra mile
To have me feeling my best

Tending to me at my bedside
When I became ill or endured killer cramps

Praising me when I succeed
Standing up when I'm deceived

Encouraging me and also reminding me
To be myself and live my life

I could never think of a better way
To thank her
For the trouble she has been through with me

This woman
Deserves a standing ovation
So rise to your feet

I wrote this piece for my grandmother. She has always been there for me no matter what. I want to give her everything back that she has given me, but I don't know how.

This is great! I particularly liked the repetition of the first two/last two paragraphs. Nice!
