I still see your
face before me
Your voice I long
you dearly
God knows, I wish,
you were here.
Tears fall freely
from my eyes,
Like a river,
filled with grief.
My only comfort
now, is that,
From pain,
you’ve found relief.

Missing You

Missing you, Grandma
I’ve left this little
card Grandma
Just so you will know,
I love you and
I miss you.
You were so very caring
So loving and so kind,
And everywhere
you went
There was a rainbow there to find.
You played a big
part in my life
And even though
you’re gone,
The respect and love
I have for you
Will just go on and on.
