The Things I Miss Already,

I miss ordering chinese with you

sweet n' sour sauce on the side

I miss watching movies with you

and you always being so kind

I miss your loving voice

saying "good evening" on the phone

The way you always expressed yourself

in carefully written poems

I miss talking with you on the swing

and our picnics on the lake

you overfeeding us at every turn

with those cookies that you'd make

I miss your hugs and your prayers

and all the lessons that you've given

I miss all the ones to come

if you had still been living

I miss you so much already Grandma

and its only been a week

But I know you're looking down at us

from heaven's highest peak.
