A Kiss For Your Soul     3/8/00-TODAY!!!    
Dedicated To Grandma G.
rough draft-just written

Grandma,
To hear of you like this brings tears unto my eyes
Remembering how you looked those months
     will always make me cry
But you pulled through
     you dear sweet soul
You lived through trial and turmoil
Yet now to hear you wish you'd died
     to watch your soul recoil...

I can't express the sadness
     that pressed down upon my being
When o'er the phone I heard the words
     "Come quickly now, she may be dying"
The crash has hurt your body, dear
     and tries to hurt your soul
But Grandma please hold tight the strength
     of all our love and light

Dear Grandma, now you've made it home
     you're back out on the farm
Please let it be that now you know
     that half the battle's won
I know it's wishful thinking
     that you'll be just as you were
But Grandma dear, please PLEASE don't let
     these last years turn a-blur

Please help your mind remember
     what is was that brought you through it
Please let yourself live in our love
     please let us help you through this
I know your mind has wandered
     quite afar from where you thought it
And I know your life is different now
     I know you feel quite humbled

But Grandma we accept you now
     just as we always have
We accept all that's occurred in you
     and all that makes you sad
We love you dear and honestly
     there's nothing that can change that
So Grandma please remember how to love yourself
     and embrace it...........


---a poem that will probably never be given to the person to whom it is dedicated...

Real good poem you wrote today.   I think my grandpa lost his desire to live a bit before he died, he was in the war, he had open heart surgery a few times, he was in pain, and then he had quadrouple by pass surgery and after that he wasent the same.... But before that he was very caring, so this reminds me of my grandpa.   Thank you for sharing this poem.   ((gives you a hug))
