Grandma

You taught me the power of a hot chocolate on a cold early morning,

You taught me the power of healing and moving forward,

You taught me that one look can mean I love you,

And that I should do what makes me happy even when others don’t want to,

You taught me the power of a homemade meal after a long day of exploring,

And when you left,

You taught me the power of mourning.

Omi

I still talk to you,

Imagine the look on your face when I tell you my stories,

When I tell you I made it,

When I tell you I failed,

I still imagine your voice,

Reassuring and strong,

Even if a little weathered,

You were powerful,

Powerful but stubborn,

And you were loving,

You smiled after a million heartbreaks and then smiled some more,

I hope you found your happy ever after,

I hope you finally found your peace,

You will forever be missed.
