I really love your poem. I lost my Grandma in October 2000. And when people talk about their Grandma's it still upsets me. And I would think that I would be over it by now, but I'm not. I'm just really glad to finally see that I'm not the only one who feels this way. I never got to say the things that I wanted to tell her, but then that kind of makes me feel more ready to be with her again and to have something to say when I am back together with her again. She's my guardian angel and I lover her!

I really like this poem and when i read it it touched me and i started to cry. i know how you are feeling because i lost my grandmother in october of 2001. She died similar to how your grandmother passed away and was always sick. but they are both in a better place and we will see them again someday.

TY TY TY! I LOOOVE this poem, feel the same way about my grandmother, and its been 3 years, i felt like i was stupid for not getting over it yet, but now you showed me that im not the only one that feels like this, and that it will probaly take a lllooong time for me to get over her being dead, if not never, yes this may seem like something someone wouldnt want to face, but i want to be ready, and being ready for it will help me a lot, i wish i could see her one more time, infact i had a dream of her last night, i had died and went to heaven, and the whole time i was searching, and waiting for her.

From a grandma -- I'm very moved by this poem. Grandchildren are the most special people in the world. Grandparents finally have the time to appreciate and we lavish that appreciation fully. I, too, am sorry your grandmother can't read this poem. I would love to know that my grandchildren care this deeply it would mean more than anything in my life.

Three years ago my grandma died, and when I read your poem my grandma came back to me. Your poem tells alot of true things on how things use to be with grandma's, when they were still alive. I really enjoyed reading your poem, your poem brought back many memories.

I really enjoyed this poem. My grandmother died 3 years ago on Decenber 10. I was at home and my heart just dropped. I didn't really cry until I went to her funeral, because it was then that I finally realized that she was gone forever. I think this poem is inspirational because it makes people think about the people think about the good times they had with the people they love, and lost. I definitely give this poem a thumbs up.

My grandma just died last year. I was camping and I found out. Every day I miss her more and more. But, I know she's looking down at me with a smile. That poem realy touched close to home bcause that is how close me and my grandma were. Thank you for helping me.

I REALLY UNDERSTAND WHAT YOUR WORDS ARE SAYING. I UNDERSTAND THE PAIN YOU FEEL. I LOST MY GRANDMOTHER AND SHE WAS VERY NEAR AND DEAR TO ME. I MISS HER JUST AS MUCH IF YOU NEED SOMEONE TO TALK ABOUT I'LL BE HERE FOR YOU. BE STRONG!

I know how you're feeling today is april the 29th of 2001 and my grandmother died this morning at 5:00. I can say I truely can relate to your feelings. I just wish this feeling of lonelyness would go away. How do you ever cope with this sort of pain?
