Years We’ll Think Of

The sun rose today,
you were not here.
Such a beloved lady
had left this sphere.

Where you travel I
am destined as well.
You hurt no longer
with no pain to tell. 

I am vexed in haze
that has left amazed
my discomfort now
my saddness stays.

Yet I will rejoice in
a lament as you rise
shedding grave’s cave
to follow all of light.

Your husband awaits
you whom have cried
for years now to be
beside him at his side.

All will be well in our
understanding folly.
Rest upon clouds you
lay upon them softly.

A kind and giving lady
born of Southern blood
now rest in peace and
fly up and high above.

Not a cross word
rather a joy laughter
will resonate here us
are in a sad disaster.

See you soon dear bell,
you left a family of love.
Conquered you’ve years
we’ll always think of.

– For My Grandmother (1938-2020)

(The year 2020 can’t be over soon enough and quite frankly it can kiss my butt)

    I’m so sorry for your loss, Jared. This is such a beautiful tribute to your grandmother. I discovered this song by Ed Sheeran, which he wrote for his grandmother. It has brought me comfort in times of grief, I hope it does the same for you. All the love and thoughts I can muster are being sent to you, my friend. ❤
