Grandmas Don't Last Forever

©

Published: May 2011

My grandma, oh she was so grand,
I loved the way she'd hold my hand,
and when my troubles they did swarm,
I'd go to her, her heart was warm.

I loved the way she sang always,
but now her face is out of gaze,
I know she's in a better place,
and now she sees God face to face.

It won't be the same now she's gone,
and I'll find it hard to carry on,
now she's soaring high above,
she spreads her wings out like a dove.

She sways above to angel voices,
now in heaven she rejoices,
she's in a place with lots of care,
and I would like to see her there.

So keep your grandmas close to you,
because you know you need them too,
so make sure you spend time together,
Grandmas do not last forever.

I am in my 50s, and I just lost my grandma on Friday August 24, 2018. I am so lucky that I had her this long. She was 94 years old but had the heart of a lion. She is missed so much already and forever. I love and loved so much. I will never forget my grandma. This is not goodbye; this is see you later granny.
Love, France
