For my Grandmother

A Poem By Clare Marie // 10/13/2009

**Written and dedicated to my grandma in the month of her death, September 2008.....We were very, very close.**

 

I was alone

And yet not alone

Because thoughts

Of you

Were with me

I sang

The last song

I ever sang to you

And it ripped my heart

Like claws

I let thoughts

Of you

Fill my head

Because then I lived

Those moments

Over again

And again

I heard your laugh

Saw your smile

And I cried

I wished I could grab you

And pull you

Bring you back with my tears

I wanted to feel your arms

Around me

Holding me close

Because you loved me so

And I love you

More

And more

Each day

Even though you're gone

Oh, so sweet.  I'm sorry

Wow Clare...

This was very beautiful. My favortie part....well actually I can't even find a favorite part, it was all just so good. I loved how it flowed. A wonderful mix of forlorn and sublime. One of the best parts I think was this:

"I sang

The last song

I ever sang to you

And it ripped my heart

Like claws

I let thoughts

Of you

Fill my head

Because then I lived

Those moments

Over again

And again."

A lovely poem. It brings back

A lovely poem. It brings back memories of when my grandmother passed in August of 2005. I was close to her, too. I'm really sorry.
