Mairzy Doats

Mairzy doats and dozy doats
And liddle lamzy divey.
A song you sung on every trip
To keep we five content and lively.

You taught me how to cook and sew.
You taught me to knit, I taught you to crochet.
I took you to concerts of Mathis and Sha Na Na
It was always fun to hang out and play.

You stood by me through my boyfriends
The duds, the dudes, and the crushes.
You were there when Mr. Right came along
And smiled through my stories and gushes.

After years of your hoping and praying
We were able to tell you it wasn’t the flu.
You were there for the sonos and the stress tests
You beamed when you bought her first shoes.

Soon you and your granddaughter were bonding
As she grew by leaps and bounds.
In only a short six months
You were no longer around.

If wishes here horses,
Beggars would ride.
Today’d be your birthday

And I wish you were at my side.
