For you, Laura Loo Premiere Contest Winner

For we are but a vapor soon to be invisible floating onward past earth’s antipodal Of the things, one could say in times of mourning, It could be said, "one day we will see them again" or "times like these come every now and then" but whether death strikes with or without warning you can't go wrong with words that are warming For death is a defeated opponent in the game of life, amen Even though this is a poetry soup contest forget not, humanity With much care, I send my condolences to you Blessings, poet Laura Loo

I meant every single word of it. I have lost both of my grandmothers and the most recent one passed away right in front of my eyes. It's devastating but I know that she and your loved one are all in a better place now.

Thank you. At first, I was struggling to find a theme to write about, but then I stopped and thought the best theme would be words from the heart that I would naturally say if I were talking to her in person. I just had to make it poetic and fit the structure. I can attest that kind words in times of grief can go a long way.
