To my Grandma

If I could have a wish come true,

A dream that’d come to pass,

I’d ask to spend a day with you,

And pray that it would last,

I’d run to you and hold you close,

We’d laugh and smile again,

I’d listen so intently,

As you told me how you’ve been.

When time was up I’d hold you close

Not wanting to let go

You’d smile and tell me, ‘see you soon’

And somehow I would know

That your time has come to let go

While it’s very hard to wait,

One day the time will come,

When heaven has called my name,

I’ll join you there forevermore,

When I too am brought Home

My wish may go ungranted

But it always will be true…

I’d trade any of my tomorrows

For one yesterday with you
