Grandma's world was neatly kept
Flowers decked the lawn
And nothing quite stood out so grand
As Grandma's world at dawn.
A lazy cat stretched on the porch
The lawn chairs in their place
She'd sit there in the country breeze
To feel it touch her face.
Grandma's house was neatly kept
Keepsakes stood here and there
Braided rugs adorned the floors
And pictures hung with care.
Crocheted doilies brightened tabletops
Perfection beyond compare
Her gifted hands defined her home
And was evident everywhere.
Grandma's heart was neately kept
Never cruel, harsh or unkind
The love she felt for life itself
Was sweeter than the wine.
Now in heaven she sits contentedly
A breeze whispers across her face
She's surrounded by heavenly flowers
And is crocheting angel lace.
