In memory of my Grand Mom who died over 30 years ago.
Seeing you lying there
In your eternal sleep;
Lots of water has flown through
since I was a child five year old
Playing around the home
Not knowing what death means..
Life as a child is always great
You have clear thoughts
An uncluttered mind,
Small memories of doing little things
Insignificant and silly ones..
Being the youngest sibling,
Unfounded grudges and constant complaints.
Time went past and the memories grew
And so did your persona on me.
Went through life which had everything;
Untold fears, un-shed tears,
Unconditional love and conditional too
Parenthood and professional success..
In good times and not so good,
Always found you next to me,
I talk to you everyday
You give me strength and give me love,
Death is not strong enough
To break our bond of love…
My poetry might not be smooth enough
My grammar might be bad
My love for you is unending
Expressed through words said and unsaid….
