Seeing Grandma in My Dreams

I saw you in my dreams today, Grandma,

Your smiling face so full of love and light

I put my arms around you and held you so tight

For a fleeting moment you were alive again

The goal was to savor as much of you as I can

As I held on, I cried, “I wanna be with you. Please let me stay.”

I don’t wanna go back to a world so grey.

You lovingly and gently told me I would have to come back.

You smelled of lotion and coffee- black.

The room smelled of sizzling eggs and bacon.

Like you, they no longer make ’em.

I miss your loving hands and sweet kisses.

Without you, a big part of me is missing.

I miss you more now that I’m awake.

Waking up is indeed a hard pill to take.

Although at the moment, I’m sad

I’m so glad

I saw you in my dreams, Grandma!
