As she was called out that day,
she wondered what it could be for,
little did she know,
in few seconds, everything will crumble down.
There and then she broke down
the moment she heard β€˜He is no more’,
and was torn to million pieces.
What was she to say?
Or how was she to handle it?
she didn’t even know he was sick.
It was shocking beyond words,
and the pain she felt never left her till this day.
With a heavy heart she went home,
and rushed by his side,
with tears in her eyes.
She saw him lay still with his best suit on,
with no more warmth to greet her home.
The presence she felt of him
was the only thing that kept her saint.
Her one regret was not having a chance of goodbye,
and that day will always remain a tragedy to her,
the day she lost the one she loves the most,
her Grandpa.

13 years ago I lost my grandpa, he was not just a grandfather to me but also my best friend and my dad. Loosing him is something I still can’t get through till this day, I miss him everyday and this is an emotion that went through me that tragic day we lost him. The worst part was I was at boarding school back than at my home town and I couldn’t be there for the person who’s always been there for me on his last breath. πŸ˜”πŸ’–

  1. The poem touched me so deep… It has been many years since I lost my grandma. Often, when such tragedies strike, we grow to be numb over the years. In the back of my mind, I still remember her, but that doesn’t affect me much, now.
    I clearly remember when I saw my father cry for the first time…
    What a lovely poem! Thanks for sharing this πŸ™‚

    1. It’s never easy to loose the ones you love and I glad to know that you’ve grown stronger emotionally over the years but I’m still stuck in the place I was 13 years ago sadly, it’s probably because I never got to say goodbye.
      Thank you so much for sharing your story as well and thank you for your lovely words πŸ€—πŸ’–

    1. Thank you so much dear friend! Yes I am trying my very best and I guess letting out my emotions is the first step, took me 13 years but its a start. Thank you for your kind words and all the love and prayers πŸ₯°β€οΈ


  4. Ah this feels so painful and real. I love my grandparents a lot. Sometimes deep down, I am really upset by the fact they are ageing and it’s unsaid.
    I am so proud of you to write this heartwarming poetry. πŸ’œ
