last night i looked up at the night sky and saw my nan sleeping on a crescent moon, dancing with the stars and singing to the planets. she saw me smiling from my bedroom window and so she smiled back at me and sent down rain so she could hold my hand again and i held hers.
my nan united again with the universe on the <10/3/19> and this was her birthday. the day she was reborn. she isn’t gone nor will she ever leave me
she said that she had to go, it was her time to go. not to leave. just to go, not away but even closer not far but right by our sides. some people believe in different things when it comes to death but i believe death is as important as life, death is as beautiful as life, death is life and life is death just like yin and yang or thunder and lighting. it is a balance.
so go where i asked,
my nan replied:
to the stars
to the moon
to the sun
to the planet mars
to the wind
to the rocks
to the tides
to the grass
to the ride of the milky way
to the rivers
to the seas
to be in you
to be free
to my mum
to my children
to my grandchildren
to my husband
to the animals
to the trees, from each bird to each bee
to the realm where the spirits roam
to a place i’ll call home
but my home is where you go
my home is where you know
everything and everyone you see all share a piece of me.
so don’t feel sad
don’t feel down
just because you don’t see me around
but when you look up to the sky
smile, because i’m takings a picture of you
for when you one day will join me again
my love, my child, my friend
oh and my mother is beautiful
i forgot how gorgeous thee
we’re together again and my heart is filled with glee
i have superpowers i can fly
so no i did not die
i am reborn once again
so let those melancholy thoughts come to an end
kiss me through a summers breeze
because i’m amongst those pretty leaves
and when the clouds are passing by
just know that’s me say... it’s me
it’s everyone you love
i am your nan from up above
i am your nan from down below
i am your nan everywhere you go.
from a granddaughter to her nan
good morning and goodnight nan. for you are the reason i’ll cry when i look up and see you sleeping in the sky.
