I Cried for Her... and I Cried for Me...
(inspired by ethome)

Sometimes I read, a poem's words
A mind of thoughts, so gently heard

Overwhelmed, my heart feels out
Speaks it's beat and wants to shout

When E. wrote of a "loving" found
My warmth arose,  past  to surround

I miss her much, was  always old
To me was fashioned out of gold

The one to give a hug for free
No wants, just loved so easily

Reminded now of times ago
When I would visit, put on a show

To spirit her, perk up her wits
As she alone would share her bits

Of history, America bound
Her travels and losses and happiness found

And family, we'd always talk
Reminisce and take a walk

She would laugh, tell tales to me
Of Mom and sisters and brothers three.

But always in the back of mind
She'd lost a bit,  no me could find

Marcia, or Edith, or Sherry or  Dee
Everyone, but Maureen or Renee

That's me the one who missed her so
Her mind was gone, she didn't know

If I was daughter, or daughter's child
Or sister or cousin,  so meek and mild

Accepted, I  did, each waking word
To see her pleased, if never heard

I cried the day she passed from here
I cried the loss of someone dear...

thank you Kit..Ethome's poem reminded me of my grandmother who lived to be 95  and passed away over ten years ago..my sister had some past  problem with her and was stubborn and wouldn't visit her in the nursing home the last few years and I would go and she always called me by my sister's name...

A big thank you to you both.  This was so lovely and touching.  It is always hard when they don't even remember who you are  . . . *sigh* . . . I have been there too.  You know and that is the important thing.  Wonderful work!!

How great a tribute to those of us who have lost someone so dear. I was very close to my grandmother and she lives on in words like your own. Great piece.
