Always and Forever

July 7, 2012
Going bowling that day,
hearing the phone start to ring.
Pick it up and hear a voice.
Drained from all the noise.
"Can I speak to your mom?"
that voice says.
As I wait, I know somethings wrong.
I get informed my grandpa's doing poorly.
Fell on some steps and hit his head.
Some people say he'll be alright,
but I know God has chosen for him to go.
He passes later that night, tears well up inside my eyes.
"I'll miss you!" I whisper to the wind.
Upset and dreary I climb into bed.
Falling asleep I dream of him.
Always and Forever!

A sweet goodbye to a loved one gone. I lost my uncle very recently, so all I can say is you are right. Thanks for giving a voice to loss and the love that shines through the suffocating darkness.

This poem is very bittersweet. It has a twinge of sadness and yet it is filled with love; it is written very frankly but manages to stay delicate. You have done a very good job.
