It's All Just Sinking In

It's all just sinking in...
I want a letter so bad,
I took for granted all that I had,
I would give so much,
Just for her corn dogs at lunch,
Just to talk to her,
To cheer on her favorite race car driver,
I want to eat Betty's Baked Beans,
And her to tell me to brush my teeth please,
I want us to play Trouble together,
No one can play Solitare faster,
She gave me her bracelet with charms,
I want to be hugged in her arms,
She was my grandmother,
She'll stay in my heart always and forever,
It's all just sinking in...

The author's comments:
This piece is inspired by the death of my grandma. It never really occured to me that I would never see her again and I wrote this a few months afterwards, when it finally hit me.
