Sometimes, words fail.

This poem is what you’d like to say, when you lose someone close.

A photograph of a 2 month old human infant, his mother, his maternal grandmother, and his maternal great-grandmother. Each person in this photograph gave birth to the next younger person thus showing four generations in one family photograph. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)


What can you say
to someone who has always been one of
the most essential parts of your world;
Someone who took you by the hand
when you were little
and helped to show the way.

What do you say to someone
who stood by to help you grow,
providing love, strength, and support
so you could become the person
you are today?

What can you say to let her know
that she’s the best there is,
and that you hope you’ve inherited
some of her wisdom and her strength?

What words would you say
if you ever got the chance?
Maybe you’d just say,
I love you Grandmom,
and hope she understands…
