An elegy to my grandma. A woman of virtue, dedication and overwhelming love. Read away!
Dear grandma, you left without saying goodbye
I can’t explain the hurt
All I see is my heart bleeding
Wishing I could wake up from this nightmare
Only to realize I woke up to this nightmare
Dear grandma, who’s gonna pray for me now?
Who’s gonna remind me I frown like my father?
Who’s gonna stress my name when I’m off cause?
I always thought having you was a dream
Even when you were my reality
Dear grandma, will these scars ever heal?
I still feel your warmth around me
Maybe I’m just holding on to every sliver of you
Reminiscing your deeds only brought raindrops to my eyes
Your demise still a puzzle
Dear grandma, who’s gonna exhaust my airtime on a call?
Who’s gonna preach to me about Christ?
Death may have put out your torch
But I’m never gonna lose touch
As you’ll forever live in my heart
Dear grandma, you were brave
Even in penury, you gave
Though a queen, you played a slave
But like Christ with souls, all you did was save
And like the museum, your memories will forever remain my crave… ✍🏼✍🏼
With a heavy heart, I say goodbye grandma… 😔😔😔
FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS..
