Funeral Day

They put your casket in the ground on November 2, 2007 on a gray rainy day, it was so hard to just leave you there, to turn my back and walk away.

There was a luncheon at your house, it was so strange not to see you in your chair, I looked around and it was so crowded and I was in such despair.

All your friends and family were there sharing happy memories of you, I listened not really paying attention as my head kept spinning, I wasn't sure what to do.

Trying to keep my composure until most people left was so hard, I panicked as I went to leave knowing everything familiar was now gone, my feelings I could not discard.

On the way back through town we stopped at your grave, as I stood there I told you how much I loved you and missed you as I tried to be brave, but one last touch of holding your hand and hearing your voice I did crave.

I recently lost my grandmother on May 17,2015. I still feel lost not having her here. We said our final Goodbye on May 21,2015. My grandparents raised me when my dad passed away and my mom fell apart after watching my dad take his last breath. See my parents were in a semi wreck. The trailer crushed my dad. So me having to say goodbye to my grandmother just about killed me. Now I feel like I'm alone in life. I have no one left to comfort me at times like this. No parents they are both gone, same with grandparents.
