In Memory Poem

My grandmother meant the world to me. Her death has been the hardest thing I've ever had to deal with. The life lessons she passed on has helped me become the person I've become

My Darling Grandma

© Margaret Rivera
A woman of extreme strength, courage and love,
Who was beautiful, soft and now peaceful and free as a dove.
Someone on who our admiration was built around,
For her womanhood, wife, friend and grandmother since she was brought into this ground.

My Darling Grandma, we will forever hold in our hearts in which we have truly learned the most from,
Your strength as a wonderful mother to our mothers and fathers,
And which we hope to gain in raising your great grandsons and great granddaughters.

My darling grandma, we will always respect all you went through in your hardships and distinguished ways,
Your ability to hold yourself with such dignity and pride in all your days,
Your beauty shines in us all who were lucky to be part of your devoted family,
We`will carry you in our eyes, minds, and hearts in which we have a remedy,

My Darling Grandma, that is to hold you close by all you have taught us to do,
And to remember the beautiful women we owe our lives to,
For giving us life to blessing us with her strong inner spirit of courage,
Her unconditional love and her sensual laughter,
For being such a person in who will always and have always
held deep in our hearts now and here after.

My Darling Grandma, You are taking a little part of us with you as you follow your angels who will guide you to your
precious place,
May you look down on us with pride on what you brought
into this world with your guidance in which you are now
truly our angel of grace.

My Darling Grandma, as you enter your new heavenly home,
may you rest in peace for which you truly deserve,
For you will be truly missed and remembered for your love and honor in which we will preserve.
We love you always and forever and may God be with you.

  • My grandma just died yesterday, I am 13 years old, and me and my grandma were so close. She died at 11:58 pm, I was sleeping and my mom called and told me and I was just bawling my eyes out sinse. Everyone who still has their grandma hold on to them very tightly, cause it just happens out of nowhere. My last words to my grandma were "I love you, see you Sunday. But, she died before I could see her again. I love you grandma!!

  • My grandmother who passed away last July 9, 2012. It is Sunday morning before sunrise 6 am. I saw her breath just stop away I don't believed that she's gone. I am thinking that it was just a bad dream, soon to be awaken me. It's hard for me to accept that she's gone already, because almost the rest of my life I was with her she is the one who teach me how to be a good human being. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH LOLA. You are always in my heart forever. and to the lessons I've learned to you I will share it also to my grandsons and daughters. Miss you so much.
