This poem is dedicated to Janet Williams, my Nan. Yesterday we went out for her memorial meal and celebrated her life the way she’d want us to, together an happy. We left flowers at her graveside, ate cake and even left her a larger, not forgetting the cigarette and Turkish delight. We celebrated Williams style.
12 years since you past away
But to me it feels like yesterday
The sun was shining and we were having fun
And then mama got that awful phone call
Then the rain fell down
And on mama’s face I saw tears
I saw her heart break.
I’m twenty now and miss you still
but I know your with me where ever I am
And when the breeze blows
It’s like your holding my hand
When I’m scared and insecure you’re
Saying ‘it’s alright, you’ve got great plans’
I know your watching over me
and laughing and crying at what I do
But that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t give my heart
just to spend a few minutes with you.
It’s been twelve years since you passed
but our love for you will forever last.
I’m lucky to have an angel
Watching over me,
And I know when the seas crash high
and clouds pass by, that you’re always
By our side.
