In Memoriam

In Memoriam short poem

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….
