Rest In Peace

I miss my grandmother
I miss her so much
I miss everything about her
I also miss her touch

She has always been in my heart
And always will be,
Although her leaving me, tore me apart
Now think of all that she can see
Watching over her family night and day
Saying I love you in her own special way

Five hours were left before I could see her
But then a decision was made, which was her going far away
The last time I saw her, when I was saying goodbye
I didn’t realize it would be the last time, I didn’t know she would die
Never thought the day would come
That I would see her one last time

She was always there when no one else was
She never left my side
That's what a loving grandmother does
Everyone has their time
But why did yours have to come so soon?
There are so many people in the world
So why did God have to pick you?
They say things like this make you stronger
But how can that be?
I feel so weak inside, It all feels like a dream

I didn't get to see you
You passed away too soon
But I feel you watching over me
Someday I'll see you again
So I'll try to keep up with all this pain

July 14th, was the worst day of my life
Its as if someone had stabbed me with a knife
All I have to say, is that you’ll be missed any way
Rest In Peace.

    Well-expressed sense of loss which I share
