Not the Same

Pull up to your house

Your blinds are not open

You’re not in your chair

Ready to welcome

Take a deep breath

Walk through your door

A quick glance around

You aren’t here anymore

Not wrapped up in your hug

No kiss upon my face

Overwhelmingly odd

Standing here in this space

Make my way to your room

Sit at the end of your bed

Let myself cry

Memories fill my head

Tell you I love you

That I wish you were here

Close my eyes for a moment

You feel so near

Grab a sweater from your closet

One that is cozy and blue

I’ll wrap it around me

To feel close to you

I love you, Grandma. Xo

Thank you for reading.

With love,
