A poem dedicated to my now passed grandmother.
I wish you weren't so far away,
So distant, a meer memory that doesn't last.
People say that you'd always be in my heart,
But they lied to me,
A cruel, a lie to keep my ten year old heart from shattering.
But now I realize how badly I want you back.
Maybe if I pray hard enough God will send the little piece of heaven that's missing in my heart back home.
Maybe if I cling to your necklace your memory will soothe the scars in my soul.
And we can have all those moments I never got to have.
You wiping away my tears, being there when no one else was.
If I could turn back time I would do it, without a second thought I'd replay my past.
Maybe then I would be close enough to you that my heart wouldn't have a chasm dividing it.
But, no matter how dear you are though, you won't come back.
No matter how many tears are spilled, no matter how much I pray for God to just let me see you.
I can't move the clouds, I can't stop the rain, and I can't build a staircase to heaven to stop this pain.
