It occurred suddenly
Right before my eyes
You simply withered away
From this earth, gone.

Abundant tears fall
Down my baffled eyes
For I lacked the very time
To wish you a proper goodbye.

You were special to me
A grandmother yet so much more
Someone I looked up to
Someone I truly cared about.

I know you're probably
In a much better place now
Your suffering ended abruptly
And left us selfishly wanting you back.

I will never forget
These moments we shared together
I will never forget
Your memory will last forever.

I will never forget
For you were part of me
I will never forget
You still mean the world to me.

In my deep state of sorrow
I put down those clumsy words
Hoping they will reach you someday
And let you know how I loved you.

You were always hard on me
Yet I always knew you cared
I've done so much to make you proud
Of your grandson, of who  I am.

I will deeply miss you
Tears have not yet dried
For the love I have for you
Has doubled, reignited
This one is special to me. I've been away lately because my grandmother died and I've been in a deep state of sorrow because she meant a real lot to me.

I don't know what much more to say... I miss her so much.

Before I say anything about this poem,I want you to know that I am deeply sorry for your loss,and if it makes you feel any better, I know how you feel because I lost 3 dear people in the same year.I am sure she is in a better place. May her soul rest in peace :rose:

This is quite sad,but beautiful,and filled with emotions.Also,I'm sure she's proud of you :hug:

thanks! I guess everyone's got a different way to react to a loss. I felt the urge to write this when i had a littl time...

Everyone deserves a tribute to their life...

I couldnīt write to you here how much I like this one.
I clicked on a link much too fast. =o.O=

Well, I wanted to say, that I really feel with you.
My gran also died, like I told you, and I donīt remember much of those last moments because I didnīt had the chance to stay.
I had to work in another city.
It was unsuspected or I would have taken the time off.
But my last visit wasnīt so grand, so I think if I ever get the chance to tell her how much I loved her your words are much more fitting than anything I could ever muster up.

It is so wonderful written.

Well I'm really glad you liked it.

It was kida difficult for me too because this year I had to study a lot because it was a future determining year at the univ so I didn't have much time to actually go and see her.

So I only saw her in her last moments and as i tell here didn't feel like I had the time to say proper goodbye. But life is as it is and I had to accept it so I mustered these 'clumsy' words as i said hoping some would reach her.
