This is a poem I wrote a couple of days after my Grandma died. It explains quiet loudly that life is short and shouldn't be taken for granted

Letter to Gran...


Hey gran, how's it going

I was just wondering how you're doing

What's heaven like

is it everything they made it out to be

I wonder if you sometimes miss me


We all miss you

You, and the silly little things you always had to do

Mom constantly cries

she never tells

but I know she wishes to be with you up there in the endless blue skies


I hope you're happy up there

just know that we're down here and we care

and I miss the fights we shared

Tell grandpa we miss him

and Suzette wishes just once more to hear him sing


You lived a long and peaceful life

and you always had that hearty little jive

You used to fight with me and dad

now that you're gone, both of us feel so sad

He misses most to drive you to town

and he wishes that you were still around


I hope you can read this without your glasses

but I know your eyes are perfect up there

Just ask God to zoom in so you can read every

little word written here


We miss you gran

and we hope that you're happy in God's world of glam

I miss our fights

and  the way you used to see everything from a different sight

I love you still and we miss your smell

so flowery and well


My cousins and I used to fight over your attention

You always told me to be God's reflection

Somedays I miss your hurtful words

They always were like cutting swords


I know we never completely got along

but sometimes I still hear you sing your favorite song

I'm so sorry for doing all the wrong

With a broken smile, I pray that we could se you for a little while

I wish to spend a few minutes with you

To show you that my letter is faithful and true
