    SILVER STRANDS IN HEAVEN


    I was born in a golden river of wisdom
    Raised in diamond spirits
    I sat upon a mountain made of satin memories
    I raised a nation

    I created a foundation built on apple pies and wisdom
    Did I mention I planted the seed for traditions?
    I hugged and kissed them when they asked me
    Grandma why?

    I gave them the sky to cover their eyes so they wouldn’t see me get tired
    I prayed that when I took my nap the nourishment would stay
    God answered me right away
    It was then I turned gray
    Resting on a silver cloud watching you
    Protecting you
    Helping god send angels your way

    So when you need me
    Just look up when your world starts to rain
    Or just stop and say I love you again and again
    Keep your hands together for the coming of the sun again
    And you’ll see my smile in it’s reflection
