grandma

Grandma my grandma why did you leave?
why did you go and not stay with me?
It was not your time why didn't you stay?
I still remember the better days.
I remember a time when you smiled and laughed.
Oh how i wish thoughs days had never pasted.
But you changed it happend so fast.
I didn't understand and it made me mad.
You use to smile all the time.
Now all i see are tears coming from your eyes.
Oh my dear grandma we did not know.
How your mind was slowly starting to go.
How it made you die inside.
Why oh why did you have to die?
There was still so much for you to see!
Your great grandchildren brought into this world by me.
Wish you could have heard their first cries.
To see the love in their eyes.
My dear grandma i miss you so.
Though not here in body you are in soul.
And your spirit and memory i shall never let go
I love you grandma
