The day I lost you, was the day that i knew,

my heart had been plunged out my body,

when they told me it was lung cancer

they said theres nothing they can do,

all I have to do is be patient,

as the nights drew in, the more sick you came

the more i couldnt stand the sight of you


I got told the devistating news you died and i never came to see you

i cried for hours, and hours on end,

begging i could just hug you

I see you in my dreams but you disappear

as soon as i call your name


i'm no longer the same, as i stare endlessly at your photo,

my heart began to melt every year that goes by and yet I miss you more

my love for you was unbearable, i wish i never lost you,

Dad came home one day and told me what happened

He no longer walks by your house as the memories come flooding back.


I wish you were here with me, as you held my hand in mercy,

I only want one more day just to say i'm sorry.

I miss you more every day and i never told you i loved you.

Grandma i love you x
