To My Grandmother
|by DuAnn Wall|
Today is the day of your funeral,
A day of mourning.
I sang at your funeral and felt a lot of pain.
Agony is taking over.
I pray to God that we will meet again.
I try to live a normal life but all I can think of
is your death.
Your death was a shock, but we all were expecting
a call one day, saying you had died.
We got that call three days ago.
When I answered the phone, I could feel something
It was Papaw.
I have never heard him cry before.
He said we need to come home, because you had passed
When we got there, Papaw asked me if I would sing a
song and I said, "sure".
I sang, "I Will Remember You."
Papaw told me that I did well, like he always says.
We came back home, and I had to sing at church.
All I could think of was you.
As days passed, I got used to your not being here.
The hardest thing was the family getting together
My Christmas present for the family was a video of
I took old pictures and videos of you and put it
all in one.
Papaw watches it every day.
I may not get to watch the video every day, but you
are always in my dreams.
We all love you and miss you so much.
I Love You Mamaw.
