When I sat there beside you,could you feel me there?My arms were wrapped around you,and I was stroking your hair.I was talking about all the good times,for me they were every single day.I wanted you to feel love and comfort,and happy in some way.I watched your every breath,and prayed that each one wasn't your last.the time we got to share together,went by too quick... too fast.I wanted you to wake up,Please Grandma.... open your eyes.Tell me this is only a nightmare,and not our final goodbyes.As your last breath grew closer,I prayed I could hold it together.But my heart continued to break,because I wanted you forever.Then there it was....your final breath of air.I didn't want to believe it,this is so cruel and so unfair.I held your beautiful face,and prayed you'd breathe again.I wasn't ready for you to go,I couldn't believe that this was the end.But then I realized that you were now in peace,you're not suffering anymore.You were beginning the life of an Angel,and your body would no longer be sore.I held you close,and I tried to say goodbye.I've lost my Grandma,all my heart could do is cry.I slowly got up,when I wanted so much to stay.I leaned over and gave you one more kiss,it was so hard to walk away.Grandma, you are my world,and I miss you so very much.I wish I could feel your loving cuddle,and your soft and gentle touch.But for now I have to wait,until we meet again.You will always be in my heart and thoughts,My dearest Grandma and dearest friend.7th June 1923 - 1st December 2019 ....Rest well, Grandma, and be at peace. Know that you were seen, you were heard and you were loved.
