Full Circle

Part of the link in the chain is broken,
Part of the piece that held this fragile bond is gone
She always called me "MINE", her token
And rightfully so 'cos mama named me after her
I always viewed her with awe
Amazed at her depth of insight and lore,
At the command of respect from all
Her name may not be known to all
Yet she remains one of the very best in my world
It was time for your appointment with Him
When it is time for ours, the lights will dim
Broken will be our earthly cord
The links in this chain will be restored

For my Beloved Grandmother !

Sorry, Maxine, but what is this piece talking about? Who is she? Can't help feeling that there is a deeper underlying theme.

@ Sankofa and sunnyside-Thanks:/

@NYA- It's about my maternal grandma. She passed last Friday. Was an absolutely wonderful person and my heart is very heavy but she lived a full life! 95+
