Everything happens for a reason.


I'd never realized what I had until you were gone.

I cryed for weeks and kept asking myself what I'd done.

What did I do to have you taken from me, just like a rug from under my feet?

I felt so lost in a big, big world full of hate and regret and sorrow.

There was no taking all that away, after all you were the one who brought me faith.

I miss your free soul and warm welcoming hands.

Your willingness to give and never to take.

And when my world came crashing down, what was a little girl supposed to do? I needed you and I still do.

You were amazing to me; everything a person can be.

You're the light in the dark that keeps me going.

You're the hope in my heart that keeps my blood flowing.

I don't go a day without thinking of you and what you taught me to be. You made me me.

I miss you like crazy.

I wonder what things would be like if you were still around. Would you tell me whats right, whats wrong and what would bring me down?

Your memorys will live on and on. You've made me strong.

So with that, I hope you hear. As I speak this softly you will always be near. Near my heart and soul with everything I do, I will forever be close to you.

The author's comments:
My grandma who I had lived with my whole life died and this was one of things I got out of it. I hope that another person can somehow relate to this. And just let it bring back memories of their own and maybe inspire someone to write somthing like this for a simmular situatiuon they've had.
