I thought she was eternal,
I never thought she'd die.
Many nights I voice my pain,
In a sad and choked cry.
Wishing she were here for me,
Regretting the times I turned away.
Only my heart holds my pain,
No one else can see.
No one else knows,
Just what she meant to me.
I write this little rhyme,
So that the world may see
And that they may understand
What my Nannie meant to me.
And although my pain is much
And it's hard to be strong
I know I'll see her again one day
And that hope keeps me
Hanging on.
