This is dedicated to the woman I'll always miss...

From that special place where

all grandmas go,

comes a trace

of your scent

stirring my heart…

Clove oil, flour,

soap, and noodles,

beloved dolls, pixie dust,

vintage photos, and lace.

As I breathe in your memory,

the old clock chimes “one”…

a reminder of the place

you held in my world.

Loyal, loving,

weaver of dreams…

Safety net, mirror,

mentor and friend…

Someday I’ll be

where all grandmas go,

with heavenly scents of

clove oil, flour,

soap, and noodles,

beloved dolls, pixie dust,

vintage photos, and lace.

There in His glory

you’ll be waiting for me…

with an inviting embrace,

laughter, and joy,

a place where I’ll finally be home.

Oh Michelle how beautiful...I was just browsing tonight and stumbled upon this wonderful poem. It made me recall the scent of my own grandmother and recall so many fond memories, yes my grandmother awaits me in heaven. I want my grandchildren to think of me and remember in such fond ways as you've described in your beatuiful poem.
Blessings my dear friend,

Still as St Paul says " I can do everything through Him who gives me strength. Philippians 4:13"

God Bless
