The loss of you.
A poem in loving memory of my grandmother.
Tears are falling
heart is aching,
slowly but surely
my heart is breaking,
How do you let go of
someone you hold so dear,
how do you begin to say goodbye
when all you want is to hold them near?
Reliving memories of the past in my mind,
I keep playing them over and over stuck in rewind,
Wishing I could bring it all back
why couldn't you stay?,
But the truth is I know why....
heaven needed their angel back home today,
So we may weep and wish we had another day,
But what we need to always remember
Is you were a true angel on this earth
and angels aren't meant to stay.
