A special lady with Hep C inspired this. Her great spirit, humor and zest for life will bring her through with the help from her good friends.


On the South coast of Texas is a special place
For Texans it holds a special site in their hearts
An island of sand that the gulf does embrace
It is called Galveston on the maritime charts

This island is history and memories of long ago
For many itís a trip back to another happier time
For her it is this and more, a dream to make so
Shorter than she appears but still in her prime

She returned with the dragon to her love, the sea
How long? she didnít know but she was here
Home to the mother of Texas here she had to be
The surf, the sounds, the sand, the Flagship pier


She strides confidently along the stone levee
Her dainty footprints in the ashes and the sand
Recalling the souls that came back from the sea,
The ten mile seawall built to protect the strand

The salty air inhaled deep into her lusty chest
The smell of the gulf exhilarating her tired soul
Memories of her children her mind possessed
Living her life to its fullest is her ultimate goal

She wonít let the dragon win, she would fight
Laughing and smiling she doesnít want any pity
Together they bask in the bright Texas sunlight
The two proud resilient ladies; her and the City
