Remember Them

By Death's Angel

I do own this poem. Please do not take it. I dedicate this poem to my great grandmother who died on May 9th. May she rest in peace.

When you're growing up

as a child

You never really think

that anyone you know

is really gonna die.

But then you feel so guilty

when it happens

even though you did everything

that you could

for them.

You never really wanna visit

your grand parents

in a nursing home

but you should

and you know you should.

Because when they're gone

that comes back

and it hurts you

like nothing ever did before

then.

Everything you never thought about

missing a birthday here,

forgetting mother's day

when you young,

it all comes back.

Because when they're gone

that comes back

and it's like a slap in the face

and it hurts you

like nothing ever did before.

You feel so guilty

you feel so helpless

and there is nothing

that can remove

that guilt.

Then things you never thought about

things that they said

or did

or pushed you to do

come back.

They taught you to read

or to write

or to walk

or to dance

or something that you use forever.

So everytime you use that skill

or see their favorite color

or hear their favorite song

or see their favorite tv show

think of them.

And forever love

forever remember

forever think of

and forever treasure

them.
