I never knew what love meant, until I met you.


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.

"Outsiders who see rules and not the love that runs through them are often too ready to label other people as 'prisoners'." -Iris Murdoch in The Sea, The Sea

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.
