"God will never give me more than I can handle...I just wish he didn't trust me so much." --Mother Teresa


How did this happen
I really don’t know
It can’t be true
Say it isn’t so

It feels like you’re still here
Living and breathing
Enjoying your life
There’s no use for dreaming

This isn’t easy to say
I don’t want to believe it
But lying won’t get in the way
Of what is really true today

I know you are glad
Up high in heaven
But down here on Earth
We are devastatingly sad

Wonder Woman, Ever Ready Bunny
Were just some of the names
People used to describe you
We all thought it was funny

This isn’t easy to say
I don’t want to believe it
But lying won’t get in the way
Of what is really true today

You had been through it all
Cancer, heart trouble, and more
Didn’t think it was possible you could go
But I guess it was time to answer God’s call

It’s very painful to see
I won’t see you until
My time on Earth is done
Then together forever we will be

This isn’t easy to say
I don’t want to believe it
But lying won’t get in the way
Of what is really true today

Your wise son helped me see
My time with you is not all that will be
So I will not say “Goodbye”...
I will just say “See you later!”

My grandmother passed away during spring break 10. I was there with my mom the day she breathed her last. She really had been close to death countless times before, and it is still hard to believe she is really gone. I wrote this one day in science class.
