About the Poem
This poem is written about my grandmother who died about 5 years ago. I was very close to my grandmother and her loss was very hard on me. It is about what we used to do together before she was sick, and then how she and "us" changed as she got sicker.
I know everyone that reads this has a special person in your life, so give that person a hug and tell them how much you love them. Because you never know when they will be gone forever.
the green freeze pops,
hugs that never stopped!
The games of kickball,
the light left on for me in the hall.
The trips to the game farm,
the times you kept me from harm.
Whenever I needed you,
it was your shoulder I turned to.
The hospital care,
you in a wheelchair.
The feeling that you weren't ok,
the days you couldn't come out to play.
I was told on a cold winter day
that you had forever gone away.
The funeral room full of fears,
Grampa's eyes full of tears.
Everyone at my house,
there was no shoulder,
tears fell on my blouse.
The pain I felt,
all of it still I haven't dealt.
I wish I could've said good- bye,
maybe now I wouldn't cry.
I know you loved me,
why couldn't you stay?
I still miss you to
Grandma - I love you.
