Dear Nana

Dear Nana

A Poem by RFDIII

Dear Nana,

I’m sorry I’m not there for you, my life took a different road,
Not for lack of caring, but in searching for what I’ve owed.
I want you to know I love you, Nana, and have since bitter start.
I can’t pronounce the words clearly, but I write you from the heart.

I don’t want you to leave so soon;
Many things, I’ve left unkept.
I wish I could have taken care;
to carry you through the steps.

Never intending to pass the time, the world just moved too fast;
Yet here we stand, granules of sand, piled within the glass.
Never fret, I love you Nana. And always, I’ll have you know;
Within me, your memories, will never -

Never go.

Your Loving Grandson,
Richard Francis Delisle III

Ends are new beginnings.
Wherever you lie, do not fear - We return from whence we came;
A place that you have been before, a space we’ll always keep.
Entering the Dreamer’s Void, let go, there is calm in endless sleep.

I love you Nana.

Author's Note

This is very personal to me, a jigsaw of my heart, one may say.
Though it saddens me, I do believe art and the human experience
is meant to be shared

So, please, enjoy!

Beautiful. The first time I read this poem, it actually made me cry. The emotion is just conveyed so strongly and perfectly. It's obvious that it comes straight from the heart, and it is so beautifully sad and meaningful. Your love for her is evident in every word of the poem.

how beautiful this is, I am overcome with emotion... the love you have for your grandmother will last forever, and though memories fade, her love lives on in you.. blessings to you both.
