Missing You

I lay awake in Grandma's bed that night,
I missed you.
I recalled the times we spent together,
I missed you.
I pondered about how my children would never get the privilege to meet you,
I missed you.
I meditated on the memory of our times on the swing in the back yard,
I missed you.
Now, trying to make it through life without your guidance,
I miss you.
Now, trying to make it through each day without your patience,
I miss you.
Now, trying to make it through each hour without your wisdom,
I miss you.
Now, trying to make it through each minute without your kindness,
I miss you.
Now, trying to make it through each second without your love,
I miss you.
I will miss you until the day I meet you in my home in the sky, and I will love you
Until the end of forever.

This is very touching. It was written very well, and the repeated words give the poem strength. I'm sorry about your loss though; it sounds like your mother was a wonderful person.
