One Last Breath Read Count : 19

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.
