Forever Flying

I write this poem

To my grandmother

A sister, a friend,

A wife, A mother

 

The sweetest being

One could know

An uplifting spirit

If you were low

 

She wore that smile

Day and night

So kind and loving

Shining bright

 

Gentle towards

The newest stranger

A moment with her

Was a true life changer

 

Admiration for her spirit

Compassion for her drive

Our memories and impacts

Will always keep her alive

 

She was the kindest being

And I will miss her every day

But I Trust In the Lord

And to Him, I pray

 

Give me faith

That she is at peace

Give all my grief

Gentle release

 

She has battled 

Her last fight

And with the Lord

She’ll rest at night

 

And even with

A tear in my eye

I know that this

Is not goodbye

 

Grandma, I’ll see you in 

The midnight sky

I’ll see you in

Each butterfly

 

I’ll feel you as 

The sun is rising

I’ll hear your music

Synchronizing

 

I’ll feel your comfort

As I weep

And your protection

As I sleep

 

You’ve touched and mended

A heart that’s scarred

I guess that’s what makes

This so hard

 

I will never forget

Your grace and love

Please look down

At me above

 

I will need you

Every day

But you would want me

To be okay

 

And even as

My heartstrings tug

I wish I could

Give you one last hug

 

And even as

I’ll miss you so

I just wanted 

You to know

 

Peggy, you are truly

Unlike any other

And that is what makes you

The best grandmother
