A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

Missing You, Nan

The years will always roll on by

and time will always pass,

but every memory I have of you

will definitely always last.

I like to smile when I think of you.

I try not to be sad.

It’s pretty easy to do

with all the good times that we’ve had.

But sometimes I can’t help it,

and memories leak out of my eyes,

and I quickly try to brush them away.

I know you wouldn’t want me to cry.

I don’t know how it’s possible,

but I love you more now than I did then,

and I really cannot wait until

the day that I see you again.

Because, Nan, I know I would take hold of you

and never ever let you go.

Every day that passes by

I miss you more and more.
