A World Without Grandma

4 posts in this topic

I woke up into a world without her.

The birds still chirp,

traffic still moves,

the rain still falls,

life has not stopped.

I have,

bit by bit.

Without her,

the blue sky is dimmer,

smiles are a little less real,

life less meaningful.

Without her,

I am taking time to slow down,

to watch the world around me,

though it seems less real.

She brought more color to my life than I realized,

her loss is deep within me,

aching constantly,

not dulled by time.

I do appreciate life a little more,

a laugh is more real,

a touch means more.

When I lay down at night,

in this world without her,

I feel her love,

I feel her loss,

I feel.
