Walk of Memory ! Empty Walk of Memory !

Post  Sue McDonald on Fri Apr 11 2014, 09:31

I took you for a walk today, held you close to me
felt your warmth within my hand, as tears my eyes did shed
the softness of the metal and brightness of the gold
held together the diamonds, which to me were the eyes of your soul

We walked along the beaches and strolled through forests green
stopped in at the coffee shop, a coffee and cake for two !
We laughed and spoke of old times, sipped coffee, had a bite of cake
then as we left the table, all I saw was one coffee and one plate !!!

No matter where I go or what the event may be
I always take a part of you, to always be with me
as the years are passing by us the pain of loss still stays
you had such an impact on me, with your pure loving ways

I take you every special place, that I and my loved ones go
you come to all our parties with both family and our friends
watch you join in the shenanigans, that mostly you do start
I feel a smile forming, knowing your there with me, no one else knows
                                                                                     only you and me !

I thankyou for the legacy that you have left for me
of passing love and happiness down our family tree
I promise when my time comes to pass the ring to mine
I'll pass it with all secrets and love you have passed to me over time





(c) By Sue McDonald......12/04/14  In loving memory of my beautiful Nan who passed away on the 12/04/09

You've written a lovely tribute poem. Your Nan would be proud, and probably is, watching over you from Heaven. Mike

I love this. My mum, am sure ,can relate. I love the lines "no matter where I go or what event maybe, I always take a part or you, to always be with me" and especially the last verse...
enjoyed very much, had so many memories flash back. thanks!
