About the Poem

My grandmother died and I didn't know what to do. My world was lost without her. So, I got my feelings out in this poem.


I sit here alone wondering why
Our lives have to end and we all have to die.
We have no idea or no way of knowing
Of when we’ll die or where we’re going
I sit here thinking of the people I’ve lost
Knowing of the pain and misery it’s cost
You could lose a family member or your very best friend
You would have had no idea that it was the end
If we had an idea of when our time would come
You would make the most of it and have some fun
You would cherish those days as much as you could
Forgetting all the bad times and making them good
When those days are over and your time is here
Hold tight to your memories and keep them near
When you rise up to God and the heavens above
Look down and watch over the ones that you love.

my grandma died yesterday after a long battle with alzheimers and cancer. i don't exactly know how to deal with my pain, but reading this poem helped me see how i am not alone. this poem really touched my heart.
This is a very touching poem to me. my grandmother is going through the end stages of passing right now. She's fought a long, painful battle with pancreas cancer. I'm going to love and miss her so much.
My grandma is dying of cancer and this poem discribed how I feel. Every day I pray that I will see her once again. Great job!
This is really great poem.
Meghan, I am very sorry for your loss. i lost my granddad in April of 2001. i am only 15 years old and my grand dad ment the world to me i cry everyday a tear for him. and pray to the lord that i could have him back.
