The Lovely Old Dear

With shoulder length hair of silvery gray
One i do see often though not every day
She must be quite close to her ninetieth year
The one who is known as the lovely old dear

A woman who has made many friends and does not have a foe
Her husband died of a heart attack fifteen years ago
A great grandmother five times yet young of heart and mind
It would only be fair to say not many of her kind

In her one bedroom basement flat she resides on her own
On her side of the parish she is well loved and well known
She is likeable and helpful and is everybody's friend
And every community fund raiser is sure to attend

In the park or shopping centre or sometimes on the street
She is one i do see often and a pleasure for to meet
Who would believe she is nearly ninety younger by far she appear
She is no ordinary woman the charming lovely old dear.
