I MISS THE GRANDMA YOU WAS
I remember you the grandma you was, the laughter
Smiles and scolding when we did something wrong.
A stranger never came to your door, all was welcome, and
Everyone loved you., the grandma you was.
You were always there for whatever we needed, to cry on your
Shoulder, laugh at our jokes, solve our problems, or just for a hug.
Sitting at the kitchen table, coffee perking, something cooking,
This the grandma I remember the grandma you was.
The ones we have loved and lost in our life, the pain and joy
You were there for it all. You were always there,
Sometimes the tempers would flare, but we always knew you cared,
This I remember, from the grandma you was.
Years have come and gone, and age taken its place, leaving us with lapses
Of memories, of what was and what is, and what can't be changed. And, I
Cry, for sometimes I miss the kitchen, coffee, and smell of cooking, that
Came from the grandma you was.
I am sad, lonely for you, my heart breaks, wanting what is gone, never to be
Replaced, wondering if you know me when you see me, do you remember
The love and fun and happiness we once shared, it makes it hard to see you,
I love you so much, but I really miss the grandma you was.
I haven't forgotten you, or stopped loving or needing you, I don't come as
Often as I should to see you, and I am sorry, I'm not trying to hurt you, I want to be there for you, but it is so hard, I can't forget all those yesterdays,
Because all I want One more time is to see the grandma you was……..
I love you,
