Dedicated to my amazing grandmother who lived for almost 106 years and loved to laugh, dance and crochet. All power to you.


You'll never pull me down no matter how
Hard you try I'll bounce right back
Your way's so small
I wonder how
You manage to laugh or love at all

You'll say that I lie
Or just high
But I was born to dance and sing
Stand in my way
You'll find yourself
Sweet rose in mouth, a crazy tango

I know that it's hard when you
See all that lies around us
It can make the strongest heart collapse
But if you would just listen to
Soft voices of small beauties you'd
Find a way to move

She outlived two world wars and
Husbands but she can still say
Over cups of tea with a grin:
"The only thing I regret is
That I can't live my life over
Exactly the same again"
