A Poem by Dawn

Maureen is an 80 year old
short and dumpy, healthy
for her age pensioner.

With the most amazing
infectious, cheeky smile
And emerald eyes
that have not
lost their sparkle
for this life.

That can still light up a room
with the wisdom and spirit of her
soul shining through.

She has seen many upsets and triumphs
in her long life.

As well as seeing friends come and go.
She has outlived family members as
well as see new Born's.

Fashion styles have change over the years.
As well as new mod cons
That didn't exist when she was younger
are now the must have gadgets.

She looks at them with curiosity in her eyes.
But fear in her soul. As she is old school.

Her love for music is country
up loud and proud
in her living room.

And don't get her started
as she can talk the
hind legs of a donkey.

And a naughty joke has
escaped from her lips
the odd time in the past.

But she is the salt of the earth
loyal, kind and decent.

Dawn - she sounds like the kind of person I'd love to meet. Ding dang! It just hit me, she's only a year older than me!

Dawn - you're a sweetheart - take care - Dave
