I stare
at the painting
in which my grandmother is depicted
waiting for the memories
to come
I wish to remember
Grandma Rose
all of the hardships
she went through
for the sake of
one little girl
she didn't have much
but she sacrificed it all
for one little girl
she left all the food she had
for one little girl
and capsuled all her energy
to instill Torah in the mind of
one little girl
so that
she would continue the chain
of her family tradition
One Little Girl.
