The poem(s) are below...



I thought you were immortal, 
a childish fantasy,
But when god took you to heaven,
he also took a part of me.

You watched me grow up, 
I watched you grow old,
i loved being at your house, 
and listening to the stories that you told.

You were a wise woman, 
someone non-judgmental and sweet, 
until some one called you granny,
then someone was going to get their butt beat! 

I miss our long talks,
staying up late into the night, 
all the "unwanted" advice, 
was somehow always right. 

I know you are proud of me, 
but i wish i had listened more, 
you tried to help me so much, 
and now my heart is sore.

I wish I could have been there, 
to spend a little more time with you, 
But i love you grandma, 
and i know you love me too.

I thought you were immortal, 
a childish fantasy,
But even though god took you to heaven, 
I know somehow, your still here with me.
