I Remember

I remember how you disliked Lillies,
Though I never understood why,
I guess they made you feel sad,
As they're used when people die.

I remember how you loved Christmas,
And the joy of the festivities,
I remember how we'd sit in the garden,
Watching all the birds and bees.

I remember how you loved working,
Crossing all the kids to school,
I know how much they loved you in return,
And to them you were cool.

I remember your love of animals,
To you, they were your soft spot,
And over the years as they sadly passed,
Not one of them were forgot.

Nana I remember our Saturday nights,
I remember everything,
I wish so much I could hear your voice,
I wish I could give you a ring.

I wish we could go out together,
To take my children to the park,
I wish you could be here to teach them things,
And help them not be afraid of the dark.

I wish so much we could chat again,
I often wonder if you're watching down,
I often see you in myself,
I often feel your spirit around.

I wish so much I could see your face,
To look into your eyes once more,
But Nana you're not here to see,
Or to chat to like before.

So when I look at Lilies now,
I too feel a little bit sad,
But I also see a reminder,
Of the time together that we had.

I wish I could hug you close,
And know you're proud of me,
I hope in Heaven you're smiling down,
At the person I've come to be.

Thankyou for all the times we shared,
My one and true best friend,
Nana I miss you more every day,
More than what I could ever write; more than I can ever say.
