My Special Place

My Special Place Empty My Special Place

Post  Sue McDonald on Sat Jul 21 2012, 07:05

Theres a special place by the rivers edge
where I sit with my Nan in my heart
it hardly seems three years ago
that sadly her sole did depart

I miss her cheeky smile
her laughter cute but crude
the sparkle in her eyes
as she told you something rude

She was a Nan unlike all others
at least to me she was
her naughtiness was pure but fun
her mischief kept her young

I've placed this bench by the river
where her heart and soul can flow free
where I can sit and remember
how wonderful my Nan was to me !


©️ by Sue McDonald......21/07/12.....In loving memory of My Nan heart

Sue, this is a beautiful poem. You did well in capturing some essense of your Nan, as I swear I could almost see her myself. Your poem has cross over apeal, in that other's see themselves in your words. I felt as if you were describing my favorite aunt. Your work is a fine example of a poetic eulogy. Your Nan, I'm sure, would be very proud. Well done.

I love your writings Sue......I too had a special Nan whom I miss every day. A lot of wisdom was learnt from her and she too had a wicked sense of humour! God bless all our special Nans in heaven who keep smiling down on us! xxxxxxxxx sunny
