Ashby, Mary Ann (Polly) -
God saw you getting weary,
When a cure was not to be,
He closed his arms around you,
And whispered, "Come to me".
So keep your arms around her Lord
And give her special care,
Make up for all she suffered,
And for all that seemed unfair.
You won't come back, I know that's true,
But one day Nana, I'll come to you.
- Love, Debbie
