I Love Her To Heaven and Back

Grandma, I am so sorry that

I never said goodbye to you.

You were a blessing on my life,

And I am grateful for it too.

I loved you like my own mother,

And I know you returned my love.

Your grace was such a beautiful thing,

Your soul fluttered upwards like a dove.

We never once had any quarrels,

But shared our feelings and compassion.

If ever I was down on myself,

Your gentle words broke my depression.

Never was I ever shy about

Saying to you that I loved you.

Even as I got older and sadder,

Our bond of attachment only grew.

I hope that you now live in Heaven,

I pray that God gave you and grandpa

A mansion that fits your way of life,

So we may be reunited in awe.
