Visits

My first visit to your grave was on Christmas Eve,
where I placed a Christmas tree for all to see.

A sense of closure is what I was after,
so once again in my life I could enjoy some laughter.

I remember, Grandma, you were always so sad that no one placed anything on Grandpa's grave,
so a decorated tree to both of you is what I gave.

I plan to be there to visit you and Grandpa on every important day,
my word I promise I will not betray.

Flowers I will always bring with words of sentiment,
I hope my actions and words of love are evident.

Remember when our visits are over as I turn to leave,
I will always return-what I promise you can always believe.
