Death Of A Grandmother
Ashley Burdett


You speak words that I cannot hear
I can feel my mind
Contort itself
Into shapes
That I have never felt before.

I try to understand everything
You have uttered in a single breath,
With words you have taken a life
Precious to both the world and me,
Away, away, away.

Speaking in swift, short words
You have crumbled my world
And ripped the breath from my breast.
Yet, I still cannot understand the depth
Of which you speak.

‘She is gone,
She has passed,
The world turns
And she is no longer a part of it,’
You breathe to me.

Shaking my head,
No, no, no.
This has not happened
You are mistaken
You have been before and you are now.

The world still turns with her
She is not gone
She has not passed.
She still is in the home
Where she dwells by the cemetery
On the street of countless houses.

I can feel tears dance beneath my lids
As everything rushes to me
In perfect clarity
A gift of God
I can understand your utterance.

Maybe you are not as crazy
As I assume.
Maybe she is gone.
Maybe she has passed.
Maybe the world turns,
But she will always be a part of it.

A legacy that could only have been left
Surrounds us.
She is in the smiles of her children,
She is in the tears of her grandchildren,
She will be in the laughs
Of those who have yet to come
Who will never know of her.

I shed tears for them
To never know her
Is to never know an angel
Sent only by God
To be touch our lives for
Just a short time.

I weep for those yet to come
Who will never know of her love
Of her constant presents
And her crazy ways.

But most of all,
I cry
Knowing that I will
Never have the chance to speak
All of the words that I wished to say.

These words I will
Take to my grave
My only regrets of this life.

But yet, I manage to still find solace
As my thoughts fly to
All who loved her
That I may look at them.

And perhaps
Even in just a fleeting glance
See her face
And speak the words I never
Got to say.
