Losing Apart of what Keeps Me Sane


Why must your memory go

your health become so weak?b

My love cannot heal you

My words cannot calm your suffering

For you have lost the one you love

And struggle through everyday


I am dying for you

drowning in my tears

For you are my family

the one who comforted me in pain

held me when I was afraid

And let me know you where here through all the strain


I pray for you daily

hope you will never go away

I always feel selfish

When it comes to you 

Because I never want you to die

And leave me here without you


I love you grandma 

And wish I could take on all that burdens you

die in your place

Because you are a beautiful person

who never deserves to be afraid

or feel alone in this world


Why must you turn for the worst grandma

And start to slowly break?

I would give anything to relieve your pain 

And give you all the blood within my veins

Because I love you grandma

And hate to see you slowly fade away
