My dear grandmother

My dear grandmother

One nigth while I was sleeping
I got a sad telephonemessage

I got up fast
The tears just trundled down my cheeks

The message I got was that you had passed away
It happened so incredibly fast

I have cried for several months
All the tears for you
Hope that some of you still are here with me

Now, I have no grandmother to talk with
For your heart stopped
Why was it your turn to let the soul leave your body

Life needs to move on
The dead, they have to be honored
I will never be able to forget you
I let the memories be hidden

Dedicated to my dear grandmother (1935-2011)

    Oh I talk with my mom all the time and others who have passed. Very nice poem for your grandmother. No doubt she was standing over you reading it as you wrote it ;}

    A moving tribute to a loving grandma! Your words are beautiful and her memory lives on....This poem really made me think of the day my grandparents both died...Don't let your memories stay hidden...Talk about her often..She would be so proud to hear your loving words from heaven. Your art work at the bottom is such a nice touch too! Love, Gwendolen ps...maybe u could at least post a poem once a month?....Don't stay away toooo long. :)

    A most heart-felt poem to a beloved grandmother. They have a place in our hearts that can never replaced or forgotten. We mourn the loss of these dear ones with sorrow and with our memories. For they have loved us, always, for who are at any given time in our lives. My best to you. You touched my heart with these words. Deb

    A grandmother's job never ends. Many grandmothers in our society step in to raise children when their mother is unavailable. Even in the best of situations, having a grandmother to help with child raising and to provide a softer touch is often a welcome intrusion. A great poem dear poetess.

    very sad, but it takes a strong person to pen all those emotions. Very uplifting poetry.
