Oh granny

Written by: Alex Hazzard

Oh granny, how I wish I'd known you.
 All i have is a frame,
 your face lay within, clean and still, I stare;

Your thick, black hair and drowsy eyes, 
Frowned lips wrinkled, a smile to see I wish,
Your failing skin brown and dull and creased, beautiful to me

My heart yearns your presence near,
 in flesh and in voice, to utter things untold,
 and roads in life should I 
know

Grief fills me as I stare,
 fingers pressed upon your glassy face,
The build of a tear to fall
Oh granny, how I wish you were here
