22 (who?)
For my grandma
"I love you to the moon and back"

12 years ago...

I remember you told me that you loved me

And how you carried me when I was three.

I remember your tight hugs

And your your white gloves

And wondering what I was gonna be.

12 years later...

I'm walking down a narrow hallway.

I'm still thinking of what I'm gonna say.

And it hurts me deep inside.

And as I walked though that wide door,

I almost hit the floor.

But I just closed my eyes and sighed.

4 days ago...

So many tubes are connected,

This is not what I expected.

Right then and there I had to cry.

You eyes weren't even open.

My heart was absolutely broken

As I watched your pain and kept asking "Why?"


I couldn't even look at you

And everyone felt it too.

You were starting to fade away.

My heart was beating like crazy.

Everything went hazy.

Still I wanted you to stay.

A few hours ago...

They said you weren't moving where you lay

And that you already passed away.

I was thinking it was all a joke.

But then it was all true

And I started to grieve for you.

All my hope went up in smoke.

Right now...

I've left so many things unsaid.

Now I stare at your empty bed.

Wish I could have said "I love you"

This is my submission for Round 2 of The "Scratch that contest"
This is dedicated to my grandmother who just passed away this morning. Thanks for reading! Please comment( it is much appreciated rather than faves)

I am so sorry for your loss. :huggle:
I can relate; even though I lost my grandmother about 4 years ago, the pain still lingers. (She left us the day after Christmas...we had an uncle, also, who passed away on Christmas Eve of '95.) :sniff:

You will get through this; I promise!

This is excellent. Emotionally charged. Most people can relate to it if they lost someone near and dear. I just opened a new folder at CrazyTeenPhotography for literature and your work impressed me. I hope it will attract other writers.
Sorry for your loss.

I thought Scratch That wanted positive poems?

But I digress; I found this poem pretty powerful. The underlining of the times emphasizes how fast it is happening, and the whole feeling of panic and rushing.

Very sorry for you loss by the way :(

They do? Oh no... I think I'll get disqualified ^^; Oh well... I'm still glad of this poem. And thank you for calling my poem powerful. That's very nice of you :huggle:

Well, kit was only overly-depressing poems, and this does have a bittersweet edge to it, so I think they will allow it. :-p
