It's not about success; it's about significance.

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.


It's been seven years since you passed away.
I still remember that very day.

A disease called cancer wreaked havoc on you.
I knew there was nothing that I could do.

I had to let nature do its job.
Your fate was determined and it made me sob.

Please know I was torn when your time came to leave.
But you’re here in my heart; that I believe.

Even though in dreams your face is shown,
I still feel so unbearably alone.

I’m still hanging on tight to our memories
But sometimes I doubt that you remember me.

You and I spent so much time together,
So it’s hard to believe that you’re gone forever.

The one thing that always seems to hurt the most
Is that I can feel you everywhere I go.

Every day I wish that you were still around.
And I wish I could hear your sweet voice’s sound.

It always hurts to break down and shed a tear.
But sometimes the pain just becomes too severe.

But I think I’m finally ready to say goodbye.
I think I’ve finally run out of tears to cry.

You and I were the best of friends.
That's why I can't wait to see you again.

But until the time comes that I can,
I just need you to know,
I LOVE YOU, GRANDMA NAN!

Grandma Nan was an elderly woman who went to my family's church. She was not my actual grandmother but she treated me as if I were her granddaughter. I will always miss her.

Those two were my favorite lines. Very touching poem, personal and thoughtful. I'm sorry about your loss, and I know she misses you too:) And I bet she's very thankful for the poem you wrote her.
