She glows
She glows with this kind of light and radiance
Like wisdom of the ages
Of elder and sages that emanate love and patience
Itís truly a sight to see

But at this milestone
The now and distant past sometimes seem to get crossed
When lucidity flickers off for a moment
As if a faraway memory came back unexpectedly
Our hearts stop for a second
And it comes right back

We bask in this love
In recollections of simpler times
Of harder decades
Of youth
Of war
Of struggles that brings a family closer together
Because thatís exactly what our grandparents would want us to do

Sheís our queen
A relic
From that generation that has seen so much in one lifetime
Iím often left in awe

Iíve been lucky
Iíve been blessed
To have been raised by strong women
To have a wonderful grandmother like her

Happy 93rd birthday jefita
