Grandma

Life is unfair in so many ways,

I sit here with my mind, all in a daze.

Thinking of you and wishing you were here,

To give me that smile, and bring me some cheer.

Whenever I saw you, you were happy with delight,

You made me feel like things will be alright.

You welcomed me and mine with open arms, held tight.

Without that warm smile, this world doesn’t seem right.

The love you had for your family was quite clear.

You wore a big smile whenever we were near.

The tears of missing you were mixed with happy tears.

You were surrounded by a loving family for so many years.

The happy times, the memories that made you smile.

The way your eyes would light up when we could visit for a while.

I won’t say good bye, I will say, “see you real soon.”

When the stars align and our souls are in tune.

I love you forever and nobody can fill this empty space.

I miss you so much, but I know you are in a good place.
