"Do not go where the path may lead; go instead where there is no path and leave a trail."
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

To see her smile,
To hear her thoughtful words,
To spend a day listening
to her wonderfully told stories
about her adventurous life.
I would give anything.

To tell her about all of the wonderful things that have happened
since shes been gone,
To show her who I have become and what I have achieved,
although I have a feeling that she already knows.
I would still give anything.

To tell her about that double play,
and about 7th grade,
and about our vacation in Mexico.
To show her my rabbit,
and all of the stories I have written,
I would give anything.

I sometimes think how much easier it would be
to have you here with me,
But I know this isn't possible.
I just want you to know
how much I miss you, Grandma!

I really like how you related this piece to your grandmother and about how much you miss her. It really touched me. Good job!
