My Heart Aches for You

My Heart Aches for You

A Poem by Kelly N

Tear jerking for me

My Grandmother has died, she was 96
Five days before Christmas, she just missed it
She was so sick, it was nothing to fix
None of us called, but we will never stop our regret, not one bit.

Her great grandson (Logan) is going to be born in two months
She will not get to see him, not for a while
Logan will hear wonderful stories of her, not just once
But a lifetime full of stories that definitely make a pile.

She was lonely, and watched her friends die
Just as well as her husband, five years ago
They had a special love, that nothing could buy
Their marriage was as beautiful as a newborn doe.

We will always miss her, for she is a part of every ones memories
She had a great family, just as well a lifetime full of cheer
After all she just about lived 100 years

Author's Note

Kelly N
She lived in California, we went to go see her every three years. The last time I saw her was last year on her birthday. She was 96, her husband died when she was 91. She was the only grandparent I actually had. We had been writing letters recently, and I had one that was in the mail and ready to go to her. R.I.P. Lois Irene Northup
