    My Motherdear turned 90 today
    I woke up, thankful to see
    pre-dawn and I wondered:
    what must it feel like
    to know 9 decades of love
    she was barely 13 when she
    left her parents' home
    5 decades she lived with my granddaddy
    and bore him three children,
    William Vernon, the
    man she never replaced
    in matrimony after he died
    for nearly 3 decades she's
    enjoyed the sweet
    companionship of Bill, 20 years
    her junior (go head Motherdear!)
    we all love Mr. Bill
    cuz he takes care of "Miss Laura"

    I woke up this morning
    thinking about my grandmother's
    rich, full life
    filled with smiles, wisdom,
    and yes, the tears

    She's my ultimate renaissance
    woman;
    my supreme role model,
    Laura is

    so selfishly I hold her close
    and I wish her A HUNDRED mo years
