The Day She Went Away

I remember frost of day
When told that she had died
I inhaled so deep it hurt
 I still needed her by my side
I was still her little girl
As tears rolled down my face
My world was deeply shaken
No one could take her place
I needed time alone with her
Not slab of gray tombstone
Breaking Sobs found their way
As I hugged her skin and bones
I could not bear to say goodbye
But time stands still for none
And so I closed my eyes and prayed
Succumbed to what was done
Although I was deeply pained
I thanked our Lord that day
For she was now in his sweet care
Not suffering in vain
But oh how I still miss her
And wish I’d gone much more
I miss her scent, Her compliments
Her waving at her door
Long were days that turn to night
As she aged and stared at walls
Times of laughter so far gone
When no one came to call
Now I ache for times of past
And dial her home often
I know she’s not there, but still
The bitterness is softened
I miss her so I always will
She loved me most of all
Now it’s me that goes and stands,
Inside her empty walls


Written for my Sweet Gramma,

I Love You Bemo!

Always, Your Chubby Checker
