I watched as my heart broke
The day I found out I would never hear you say my name again
I spent my life dreading this day
I was always jumpy and afraid
I was scared that you won't be here to watch me grow up
And I am shattered, but I my thoughts were a true reflection of the future
I will not use rhythm on this one
But grandma, this is a poem for you
The day I woke up in the middle of the night to your painful moans
That was the day I knew that if I lost you I would die
And I did.
I might be here physically, my emotional being left with you.
I don't wanna say rest in peace because you lived your life with love and peace
I will wait till the day I can see you again
In the meantime, I will soak this pillow of my mine in tears every night.
I have tried with all my might
But nothing feels alright anymore
By these words, rest easy, beautiful flower.
Blossom upon me.
