When craving pangy bells did rang

She lovingly caressed to ease the stress

Fuming and threatening that which gnawed

With laws which seemed outlawed

To make me see that one is flawed

When he, she or it, gets to my bad side

Increasing love was never cherished

Until the mouth of the grave opened

And called her out in a loud shout

What am I to do here now?

Her hands can no longer reach me

From the mouth of the grave

And I yearn for them in the middle

Of the river of my tears drenched in my fears

Like a stray cat lost in a vast sea

Oh Grandma! You so chewed!

Oh Grandma! You so maimed! 

Oh Grandma! You who had so much love!

Ascend the grave

Come here and save

Save your beloved in the form of me

For I was wrong to see so late

That what we had, was just one

Yes, one for once in a lifetime

  1. What a beautiful tribute and memorial to your Grandmother. I too miss my Grandma Hattie Banks. We were both Pisces, we shared Love and she really cared for me. No it’s not the same without Grandma’s Hands.

  2. I’ve been here to Cecilia, I was to young to see my grandmother mother’s love, I was to busy to listen to her wisdom, I didn’t notice all her ways that she cook all those delicious dishes. Oh how I miss her so, I feel this one, great work, many blessings
