A lady with encouragement
Who loved everybody?
No matter what they did wrong
She is the lady that raised me

My grandmother, Willie Mae
Never talked about anybody in a appalling fashion
She didn’t care what you look like
She’d only care if you were right

Strong as a rock
That nobody could break
With the lord by her side
She had all the power she needed

To make it for life!
Sixty two years of living
She thought it was the best experience she’d ever had!
The Lord had ask her to carry redemption's plan

She lived life with bumps in the roadway
People telling her that she should just live and die
But she could afford that

She walked the path of life highway
She married a man to be with her for desperate need
Years have conceded for a while and as a grandmother
She knew it was time

To be a grandmother
Her husband had passed on out of existence
She was the only grandparent I’d ever had
I made the best time of it with her

She cooked the best Sunday dinners that nobody could ever envision
Oh how good was that piece of Heaven!
She was give me the advice that I need it when times were rough
She told me not to worry about anything

She only told me to pray
Pray hard and long for the Lord to hear the brightest beg
She said trouble isn’t going to be here ever day
How long?
Not long

She was a person that I could talk to
When I was in the deepest valley alone
There with me
She was all I needed to get by

Unfortunately, cancer had come
I watch horrifically through all of the pain!
Waiting for a sign
A sign of hope

A sign of peace
Getting weaker everyday
But never spiritually!
And she did not once complain

She knew it was an unambiguous reasoning
But for what though?
She knew her time was coming
That day

She told me she was dreaming
Dreaming like she had never had before
Traveling through our adventures together
Those days are over
Not over for that long

Looking at pictures
Made me look dreadful
Of all the wonderful times
Was a close

The day has come
Willie Mae
Come on
Its time my daughter

To say goodbye
She said she was ready
For a trip to the city of heaven
For there she could relax

And not to worry about what’s going to happen
She was at peace
No more, no more, no more sickness!

No more people talking about her
She had done what the lord had asked of her
For sixty two years
Sixty two is good enough

Well done my daughter
Well done
Go, go
Do what ever you desire

Keep your head up
Don’t worry about what people say
No matter their beliefs

Because you are worth it
To make it through life
Cross the bridges of life
And when you come home

I’ll be waiting
Waiting for a hug and a kiss
You will always be my grandson
I love you and I will see you soon

I love you too
I love you dearly
You mean a lot to me
Grandma Willie Mae.
