Poetry Is a Mirror

{November 25, 2012}   30 Poems in November: Poem #25

This Lady

This lady cares for me

This lady loves me

This lady is far from me

This lady is there for me

This lady has a past with me

This lady has a present with me

This lady tries to do everything

This lady is too old to do many things

This lady is sick

This lady is slim

This lady is 4’8” inch tall

This lady is too small

This lady is always right

This lady is loved

But this lady doesn’t want to live with me

This lady that I will never stop loving

Is my grandmother.
