"A Tribute to my Mother-in-Law"

"I know you miss Nana,you miss her so much,
I wish you could hold her,to again feel her touch.
I also loved her,and miss her I do, I'm grieving
for me,I'm grieving for you ...........

She must have been as strong as you are,I didn't
know her,for then I lived far,as soon as I met her
she melted my heart,I knew then I'd love her,for
that was the start...........

She came to California when we had our son,
such a beautiful lady,so pretty,so much full of
fun,to gamble ,to Bingo,she went with my mom
they became buddies, a friendship,begun..........

My mother,Hilaria,could hardly wait,to visit Maryland
that's called The Free State,her friend MaryAlice,
my mother-in-law,made her feel welcomed,for that
we all saw............

The family occasions, her cooking,the fun,we all truly
loved her,for all she had done,soon came her agony
and we were all scared,we didn't want Nana to go
anywhere ...........

But,as we all surely know,when the Heavenly Father
calls on you,you're ready to go,to lessen her suffering,
He surrounds her with love,she's now up in Heaven,
in Heaven above.........

Her spirit still lingers on Holiday Lane we were all there
when the end finally came,we must always remember
she's not far away,she's talking to us,and if we listen,
we can all hear her say ...........

" I'm looking at my family,from up,up above,I'll always be
sending,I'll be sending my love"...........

I guess it's okay for a poem about grief
