For Nanny

A Poem By Damaris Ann // 3/7/2016

For Nanny with love, for many precious years
Of joining in laughter and drying up tears,
For prayer and encouragement, tender and true,
For the times of welcoming with "I love you."
A beautiful heart given beautiful hands
To pour out her love and fill up all demands.
Short in stature; a fearless warrior and bold;
Every life touch'd will miss her wisdom of gold.

This is really sweet,

This is really sweet, wonderfully worded, and very emotive. It paints a picture of Nanny through her actions, and the reader is given a very distinct sense of who she was. This is a lovely tribute! My favorite lines:

A beautiful heart given beautiful hands
To pour out her love and fill up all demands.

My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭55:8-9‬
