On December 7th, 2008, my grandma has sadly passed away. I had wrote this the day after her death and was very emotional.

This is dedicated to my lovely mother, who I speak about and my grandmother, who sadly passed away December 7th, 2008.

This is also dedicated to my uncles and aunts and those who lost a good grandmother and friend.

I awoke from what I thought was a dream
to see her stuff in my living room
and a picture of her alongside a saint and a cross
at the ground, I looked
realizing that I had not dreamt

On the couch next to her picture
I sat next to my dog
staring at a figure
that represents Jesus's birth
a figure in which she had given to my mother

Toucher her fluffy, smooth, pink robe
a tear dropped from my eye
In my throat, I felt a ball
explode, I was ready to cry
when my mother walked into the door

With eyes full of tears
she told me she was fine
but I knew that she was not
I held her in my arms
as her tears wet my shoulder

She told me how much she loved her
I knew she would miss her so
the hardest part of death
is letting your loved one go

My father spoke about her death
and how she turned blue
and her skin became freezing cold
an hour after her death
her mouth had closed

2:10 in the morning
on the remembrance day of Pearl Harbor
another bomb had dropped
and exploded in our hearts

Today I will forever remember
today my grandma had left our lives
today we will forever remember
the day someone we loved had died.
