This is a poem written about the somewhat recent death of my paternal grandmother, a woman I always admired.


For months I have struggled to sum it all up
The unyielding sorrow is never enough
I can't get it started before it all stops
There are not enough words to explain what I've lost
What can I say when an empire falls?
You've been around longer than I can recall
Ever my mentor, though you wouldn't believe it
I'd sing to your praise if I thought you'd receive it
God is elated to now have your spirit
We were all blessed to have a few moments near it
Touching our souls, each and every precious one
A mother, a daughter, a sister, a son


Who I've become is due partly to you
I'm always inspired by what you went through
Losing so much always made you much stronger
What would we do if we just had you longer?
You never could stand to see others suffer
How you held on, I will forever wonder
Anyone else would have folded and died
For your pain alone, many moments I cried
Now you are gone, and you no longer ache
Your spirit left such an imprint in its wake
My regrets are so many, my achievements so few
What would I say with more moments with you?
"I ache for your losses, your grief, and your pain
I've fallen, unable to rise up again
I don't ask forgiveness, only to be free
From the grief I've held onto since you left me."
