In Memory Poem

The Pain Of Remembering Special Times Together

The poem was written about my Grandma, Flossie McMillan, who passed away on November 2, 2007. I have lost people in my life before, but this death hit me really hard. There are lots of days a memory brings about depression and tears. I miss her more than words can explain.

Almost A Year

The familiar sting of tears in my eyes
And the ripping pain in my heart.

It's been almost a year since the dreaded day
That my whole entire world was ripped apart.

I didn't know the depth of my love
And how I would miss you so.

The pain I feel is still as intense
As the very day I had to let you go.

So many thoughts and memories creep
Through my aching mind.

The answer to heal my grieving
I fear I will never find.

Grandma, please don't be sad when you
Look down upon me from heaven above,

For the tears you see are from all
The memories of you I love.
