Goodbye grandma


the true sounds of hope
that lead
my tears to gallope
they made me believe
that you are still alive

all the emptiness
all the loneliness
that covered my heart with ashes,
tranquil as I gazed at your coffin,
slowly your body was swiving to ground,

those moments
declared your absence,
they took away your loving smile,
your caring eyes
that never decieve,

an old voice,
that taught me new lessons,
if this is how your life ended,
it is as well how the span
of my pride ends

i wanted you
to see all my success,
but i guess life was shorter than that
its hard to live,
its even more hard to believe,
that you left us with this grief,

we know that you are gone,
i can feel your depature,
you not coming back,
all we left with,
are memories,
and memories
and more memories

Good bye grandma,
we are old now,
you never abandoned us,
instead,
your benedictions raised us

your etetnal spirit
likewise
should live
even longer
