A Poem by Saumya

A real story of intense love between a granny and her granddaughter, and the pain of the granddaughter on losing her....

Once, there were days, I used to play;
Once, there was someone, in whose lap,I used to lay;
Once, I was gifted ,with every great gifts of GOD, that,
one strives for;
Once, I hadn't to fear; because,  someone, very dear to me;
was always with me, to take care;
Once, there were days, I needn't bother,
because I  had someone, sweeter than a brother

Once, there was someone,
who understood, all my emotions;
and she, had an immense perception...
Once, GOD gifted me,his best Angel;
she was no one other, than, :

And, how sweet!! it is, to tell you,
my dear readers and friends...; that :
' if i am here today, its all because of her..,
Even today, I wonder, that what was
in her so stronger; that..:
i never had to explain, and she,
clearly perceived my pain...

To me, she was something, more than a mother;
And, I think, thats why,GOD made her,
I enjoyed with her, the most I could;
To me, she was someone, sweeterthah Kids.....

My day started, seeing her;
and , it ended,  sleeping with her..
I loved  her stories;
and, liked her night rhymes,
for me, with her, these , were..;
"The best times".....!!

Days passed, and she grew older;
Gone were the Cuteness, and seen was Dullness;
Gone were the Chubby cheeks , and seen was the Wrinkled Face of hers;
But something, that was still t he same, was;
The Love, Care, and Concern  for her,

Honestly, to tell you;
No one in my life, Loved and Cared for me,
As she could....!!!!

Then, came the day, describing which,
My eyes get  filled with pain;
GOD, almighty ,called her angel, back to heaven;
and I in this confusing world was left, all alone;
NO ONE, to PERCEPT me..;
NO ONE , to SHARE  my feelings with...;
NO ONE, to FEEL the pain of my sufferings; and,
NO ONE , to SLEEP and LISTEN STORIES with;....

O, GOD, almighty, I'd really like to thank you...;
for gifting, such a lovely Angel of yours;
who has taught me a great moral, by her detachment, that:
"BIRTH and DEATH are, two basic truths of human life,
One who has come, has to go, and, GOD too, needs,
good people to be with him....."!!

O my  lovely Granny,  may you be safe,
wherever you are, and if, you can see and hear me,
I'd like to tell you, that:
and here on this earth, Iam totally, incomplete without you, and;
I really MISS YOU.....!!!!!!!!

This is an emotional experience for many that have already read it, I share the same feelings...I'm not sure if I've ever recovered from losing my own grandmother, but like you, I've never felt a sense of total loss...a very sweet and heartfelt write :)

I know how you feel, for i have two grannies that are in heaven. We are influenced by these 'angels' who love unconditionally. Blessed are we to move forward and have beautiful memories to take a long into the future.

Sometimes the canvas isn't big enough even though it's all we can afford.

I was so close to all four grandparents. Saw them passing away one by one. Terrible feeling.

This poem is so relatable to me because 5 years ago, I lost my great grandmother. She was wise and had such a beautiful spirit. It broke everyone's heart when God called her back to heaven. It especially got to me because I had not had the opportunity to spend nearly as much time with her as other family members had. But the times I were with her were awesome. However, I believe she spends a lot of time with me now even though she isn't physically here. I loved the flow of your poem and how you capitalized GRANDMOTHER, it really expressed how important she is to you.

It hurts to lose a loved one, Saumya. I know this from experience. It gets better with time, initially it can be very painful.

Reading this though it alludes to the concept that God may have left you in your Grammama's absence.

But no, I don't think this is the case. If God was in your life in happiness wouldn't He certainly be there for you as well in your state of loneliness as well ? There is a famous story called, "Footprints," and I think it applies here.

The premise is that man in his final days was looking at a beach which showed where him and God had walked through the man's life. He was a little troubled, however to see that in his deepest depression and most difficult times in life, there was only one set of footprints.

He questioned God on this. "Why would you leave me alone to walk by myself when I needed you most ?"

God responded, "My dearest child, these footprints you see before you. Those where there is only a single set and it is here that life was most troubling for you. it is then that I CARRIED you."

I miss my loved ones too, Saumya, and at this point, it's nearly half a dozen people I have known. But - I would certainly let your family know your feelings for your grammama if they don't already know.

Hang in there. Life doesn't necessarily get better, but we do become more accustomed to dealing with hardship and grief over time ...

Nothing in this world like a grandparent. All mine are gone now and I deeply miss them. They were great influences in my life. Wonderful tribute to your Grandma.
