Hand in hand
I walk and wait
Drowning (in my own fears)
Frowning (the lost years)
Of new life
Reminders of a different day
Full of cries of life
Not anguish and strife
Tears pooling my eyes
I dare not blink
I want the tears to dry
For I fear if I cry
Let a single tear drop
My heart may just stop
Along with yours
You and I
We were there for each other
We both understood
The greatness and loss
The loss of 2 great men
Your Husband and son
My Grandfather and Father
Yet here I am, again
Without your support
I try to stand
In the very spot
We once stood
Hand in hand
In loving memory of my Grandmother.

I am so sorry for your loss, Jennifer. As personal as these words must be to you, they really convey to others how special your relationship was with your grandmother. Your gift of writing is a gift of healing.
Thank you for the kind and encouraging words. She was a special lady whom is already deeply missed.
Wow, this is beautiful.
Thank you. 🙂 I’m glad you enjoyed it.
It was more like… a haunting, seize-the-heart kind of thing, actually. 🙂
I believe that all emotions are beautiful….even the ones that lead us to feel sorrowful.
Maybe because we are reminded by the sorrow of the happiness we had?
There is no beauty in hate, though. Not in the unreasonable kind, anyway.
