Goodbye, for now

Yesterday, my Granny Dake passed away.

She was just a few months shy of 104.

She was my great-grandmother by my dad's dad.

She was a sweet, meek, God-fearing prayer warrior.

This is my temporary home
It's not where I belong
Windows and rooms that I'm passin' through
This was just a stop
On the way to where I'm going
I'm not afraid
because I know this was
My temporary home
