My Grandmother

My Grandmother

A Poem by Ememuelle

There are days when I see the pale moon appear,

And I linger in those moments, because I know that you’re near.

I often wonder why I should miss you so much,

But wonder not long, as my life you did touch.


You were a remarkable woman, a lady for sure,

A true inspiration, and a tough problems cure.

Always there when I needed you most,

A gentle spirit, and a grandmother to boast.


I loved how you wrote, narrated tales so well,

I loved how you spoke, and the stories you’d tell.

I loved how you smiled, when we stood in the flat,

I loved you so dearly, and that was that.


Many days I did visit, with sorrows to drown,

You helped me so often, a queen with no crown.

Hours could pass, five cups could have poured,

But every second with you was a moment adored.


Whether my news was bad or good,

I never feared telling you, like sometimes I should,

Because if it was spoken in whispers or aloud,

Of her grandchildren Nanny was always so proud.


I miss you so much with every day that does pass,

A woman of life, and of admirable class.

You were an angel on earth, now a star in the sky,

A beautiful presence, and one tough goodbye.


In your adopted Island is where you now sleep,

Yet when we all visit, none of us weep,

For you’re not there in the deep of the ground,

You’re in the air, so forever around.

Simple beautiful. I love the feeling and emotion seen within every line written. You remind readers how lucky they are to have grandmothers and help us to see the insight they have to offer.

The poem is beautiful. We need to remember the good people in our life missed like in this amazing poem.
"For you’re not there in the deep of the ground,
You’re in the air, so forever around."
Thank you for the outstanding poetry.

The loveliest angel ............... next to god is our grand mother..............the god itself is our mother. These two ladies are someone who never ever.......let us feel .. drought of love at any point of our life. Those people are very lucky....who lives with both of them together. You cant ask anything more than this in your life :-)

Very nice and heartfelt poem, I believe first time I read a poem about family love.......a grandmother and a child............Very nicely written. Excellent :-)
