We sat on the floor,
Doing blocks and puzzles,
Telling horribly bad jokes,
Laughing until our sides hurt.
You never had a cross word for me,
Always told me how much you loved me,
And appreciated every moment we spent together.
You saw your name in lights on your 80th,
The scoreboard at a Mariner's game lit up your face.
And today, you joined your husband again at last.
He came for you,
To end your suffering,
To end your pain.
And he did it,
Of all days,
On your Wedding Anniversary.
in Memory of my Grandmother
