Eulogy poem for Grandfather

Now that you are gone

Now that you are gone
I regret that with my tender eye:
I didn’t embrace your gentle smile
But I just let it pass me by

Now that you are gone
I wish that when you hugged me,
I filled my lungs with your sweet scent
Instead of moaning awfully

Now that you are gone
I wish that your love I didn’t slaughter
Because you treated me so well
As a friend and a granddaughter

Now that you are gone
I know how much time we did spend
And I understand that every beginning
Must always have an end

    Oh, it’s so sad.. I can feel the pain..

    I have written on the OSI prompt ‘The Passing’… talking about the need to document it..and find that you have documented the passing of a grand parent so well..

    God bless! Take care, girl..

    Now that you are gone – I m all too familiar with this and I wish I weren’t.

    Beautiful poem, Marinela. Grandmas have a way of knowing you love them regardless of what a grandchild may regret once they are gone. No regrets just beautiful memory. Once again a very feeling poem.

    Very touching poem, Marinela. *sigh* reminds me of my relationship with my grandmother and her last days.

  13. Bodhirose says:

    Isn’t that the truth–sad to say, we don’t always appreciate someone until they’re gone from our lives…

    Touching and reflective.
