Crystal

Crystals are one of the most amazing and beautiful geological creations we as man kind have found,

And I used to agree with them-

Until I met you.

 

A kind, caring soul,

You welcomed me with open arms.

You treated me as if I had always been apart of your family,

Not the outcasted step child/grandchild that I felt that I was.

No- you treated me with th esame kindness and love that you gave all your grandchildren

And I will never forget that. 

I'll also never forget you warm smile,kind eyes, welcoming embrace.

Even into your last days you never failed to smile,

Never failed to stay positive even though there was nothing they could have done to save you.

 

When I found out that you had been diagnosed with Breast Cancer,

I didn't think much of it...

Untill I saw a picture of you in the hospital on your 60th Birthday...

You were so small and frail,

Nothing like the woman, the Gram I had come to know and love.

But when I talked to you on the phone- 

I knew that this monsterous disease hadn't affected your loving soul.

 

You always wore that beautiful smile. 

The smile you would give me to let me know everything was going to be ok...

But now-

Now I'm not so sure 

I know that you're no longer in pain and that you're with God looking down on us..

But it's not the same.

 

I never got to say goodbye

I never got to tell you just how much I loved you.

But I know that you'd want me to be strong and keep my head held high.

And that's what I intend to do.

I will help to keep your legacy alive by passing down all the lessons you tought me and by holding all our memories together close to my heart.

I kown you wouldn't want me to be sad and so, for you

I'm going to make the most of my life

And I'm going to make sure I show the world just how beautiful my grandmother, Crystal Mutti, was

Because you were more beautiful than any geode or precious stone.
