Grandma's Pen

My grandma
so full of life
died suddenly
in the night.
An attack
of the heart
they said
to my family.
The funeral
was bleak
full of lose
full of tears.
At her house
her things
were given
away to us.
My sister
the spoon collection
gathered with care
given with love.
My brother
the books
old and dusty
full of memories.
I received
what made
me weep
her pen.
Engraved and silver
she knew I wrote
she knew me
better than I thought.
Her pen
from before
my birth
given to me.
Her love
my grandma
encased in silver
released in the ink
