Grandmother Poem

Grandmother Acrostic Poem

My grandmother (Aparna Sengupta) left us on March 12, 2017, on the day of Holi. The gods welcomed her in their garden after a year of extreme pain and suffering. Two years have passed, but I still miss my granny a lot. She was the person with whom I spent the long lonely hours. She was the person with whom I used to sleep. Her presence was the relief, the place of confession that my young mind searched for. I missed her for the last two years, I miss her today, and I will always miss her in my life.
