Grandmothers. Poems. Loss.

Grandma

This Is Not My Mother, But It Is Of Her Era. I Have a PIcture of Her With a Bow Just Like This


My Mom’s birthday was April 14.

I lost her in 2003, two-and-a-half years after a debilitating stroke.

She never lived alone again.

 

If Flowers Grow in Heaven

If flowers grow in heaven Lord,

then pick a bunch for me then

place them in my mother’s arms

and tell her they’re from me.

Tell her that I love and miss her

And when she turns to smile,

Place a kiss upon her cheek and

hold her for awhile.
