My Youth's Softest Light

My sweet, Grannie, tonight I embrace space seeking your dear, fresh powder presence gentle words of love’s selfless attention turned to silence way too soon ... in my heart we still share love Grannie, you were the softest light in my youth Could you but rock me secure once more this night – sing your comfort songs – gently hush my grown fright; safe, sweet Grannie arms would shield me in love’s truth. I still talk to her close my eyes with hopes she hears ~~ she believed in me ~ ~ her image never leaves me my adult still craves her - here

Beautiful tribute CayCay. I wish I could chat to and hug my grandmothers too. “Gently hush my grown fright” - wonderful. I like the way this is structured but not structured too, and rhymes but doesn’t rhyme! I like half-and-half poems!

A beautiful moving poem CaCay deserving of your win. I never had a grandmother. Both died young. I wish I had experienced that kind of comforting love. Congratulations! : ) xxoo

So heartfelt and touching, CayCay. I only remember one g'ma; she died when I was still quite young, but I know that she loved me a lot. ~ Congratulations on placing first ... very much deserved. Regards // paul

This is so sad, so sweet, and filled with the love that I also felt for my own grandmother. "My adult still craves her here".......what a tender, bittersweet line that is :) Congratulations on your win!!
