I Am Thinking

Published: February 2008

I am thinking,
I wonder how long she will live,
I hear her heart beat,
I see her cry,
I want for her to never die.
I am thinking ,

I am thinking
I pretend to be happy,
but inside, I really feel sad,
I touch her hand,
I worry is she OK?
I ask myself, does she remember me?
I am thinking

I am thinking.
I understand no matter what she will die,
I believe that she's OK even though inside I know she's not,
I dream for her to say alive,
I trust the hospital to keep her here with us,
I hope I can see her again.
I am thinking.

it was March 14th 2015 the worst night of my life. I was babysitting... and my sister came to the door. I was happy. I smiled and then she frowned. I had an idea that my grandma passed...she said "Felicity. I'm so sorry". I dropped to the ground and just balled my eyes out. My grandmother died of stage 4 cancer. She was the most kindest woman I know and will ever know.
I'm so so lucky to call her my grandmother. I'm so happy she is out of pain. I smile when I remember amazing memories with her. I'm just so sad. it's been months and I'm still crying myself to sleep at night.
My regret is not spending time with her as much as I want to now. I took a picture of her once at her old farm house that I miss dearly. All my memories from age 1 to 12 are gone.... I took a picture of her waving goodbye. That is the last time she waved goodbye. I still miss her everyday. Grandma., I know you are an angel now but I want you to know I love you so much. I'm sorry I took you for granted.
