O Grandma, O Grandma, don't ever give up hope.
All you family and friends are learning to cope.
Please stay strong and never stop praying.
You will get better soon; that's what everyone is saying.

You are Grandpa's life; please stay with him.
If you were to leave us, the world would be so grim,
You are on our minds every minute of every day.
You would never get sick if I had it my way.

Loving and generous is what you are.
Everyone who loves you isn't too far.
I can't tell you how much I care about you.
I know you'll get better; I know this is true.

There is one thing that you have to promise me you'll do,
Please beat this thing and keep your faith too,
Don't ever give up hope and don't ever say goodbye,
because God is with you and so am I.

This reminds me of my grandmother. She is nearing the end, and this gives me some comfort for when she passes.
