Grandmother Death Poem

I would like to dedicate this poem to my grandma Lucy who recently died on June 7, 2008. My grandma was the most courageous lady that I know and will probably ever meet, she put up a long fight with lung cancer and she never stopped trying, and that is how she will be remembered. I love you grandma with all my heart and I always will. rest in peace.

My Grandma
you were in my life for the longest time
and now your gone all in a blink of an eye
I am so confused, I have no idea why
this had to happen to you
but I guess cancer takes some of the best
and we all have to die someday
I just wish it weren't so soon
I need to know that you're okay and you're up there with God
watching over me still witnessing me grow
I need some sort of sign, I need to know
I guess the pain and suffering is all done
I miss you grandma.
I just need one more day with you so I can tell you how much I love and miss you.
grandma I love you with all my heart.
and I know that you're up there watching over me.
I remember how you told me everything,
no matter what happens, will be okay.
I love you grandma, rest in peace.
I'll be seeing you again one day.
