Granny

Today...
Today I revisited a place that held much memory and celebration;
Yet, instead of celebrating,
I lost my breath.

All too quick, I couldn't speak

So I walked. 

I paced through the place where we once stepped.
A spot where we once smiled, laughed, and played.

You were always there.
There for me in the chaos of my family.

There was no room for any error in our relationship.
No lies. No doubt. No sorrow, only love.

And it is not until I remember that great significance 
Until I walk.

Until I walk past what was once your home.
Until I walk past what was once our spot.

And then,
That is when I listen
To the sorrow and ache in my heart.

And then,
That is when I listen 
To the symphony of celebration over your life.

And then,
That is when I pause 
And take a moment to reflect.

That is when I really see you smile 
From up there
Where we will one day meet again.

XOXO,
