Well behaved women rarely make history,

Everything happens for a reason


I am from …. A part of your soul
I am from the crib you made
That put me asleep
From the arms you have
To hold me tight

I am from your brilliant eyes
That looked and admired
Your granddaughter
From the smile you gave me
That taught me to be happy

I am from the blanket you sewed
That helped keep me warm
From the laugh I heard
That I will soon echo

I am from the doll you bought
When I was
3 years old
The one I still hold

I am from the tears your cried
That I knew you just couldn’t hide

I am from the love you showed
That I will pass on
From the soul you had
But now it’s gone
