In October, I lost a friend to suicide.
Yesterday, December 27, 2004, I received a phone call from my mother that my grandmother passed away. The news was unexpected.
Now, I'm just going through my memories. It's so weird to have this image of a person in your mind and know that you will never see them again. That feeling is eternity at its best.
So - I'm sitting at this computer and posting a poem in her memory that I've written this morning. She had nothing to leave to this world for the world to remember her existence. Memories fade and after a while, it's hard to convince yourself that person was even real. I lost a childhood friend a day before 8th grade due to drowning. It's been 12 years since his death. He almost seems like an imaginary friend.
Anyway - I'm posting the poem on various boards on the internet so at least her name will always be in view by someone.
Most of my friends and family have passed away since late 2001.
Hope everyone out there has a safe and happy new year!
