I feel your absence

within this life ,

he called upon you

With his endless light.

It's never easy

when you're unprepared ,

to face the loss

in this tragic fear.

Radiation

ate you up,

but you held your love

with a fighter's heart .

The battle rallied

between smiles and pain ,

but somehow you were able

to remain the same.

Carolyn

please come back ,

this world is lonely

and wisdom lacks.

Carolyn

please come back ,

it's not enough of a memory

with just chimes and knacks.

Flower jungle

covers the yard,

still maintained

after winter's charge.

Carolyn come back

and dry these tears that fall ,

Carolyn , please come back

to us all.

Are the gates really pearly ?

Do all the angels fly?

Are you allowed to fish

upon a lake so high?

Are there fields of clover

mowed like new ?

Is heaven's sky

your favorite color of blue?

Did you see when

your Cubs won the series ?

Were you screaming

and acting silly ?

The disease took it's toll

but it didn't win ,

You were taken

while morphine sedated .

Carolyn ,

Please come back,

it's not enough of a memory

with just chimes and knacks.

I'll always be your little boy

that's what I was told,

right before you ascended

to the streets of gold.

Grandmother ,

please come back,

please come back ,

I'm still needing your wisdom

and the years we've had.

Are the gates really pearly ?

Do all the angels fly?
