Challenges I had while writing this poem were mostly who I was going to write it about. After a lot of thinking I finally decided to write about my grandma. I was able to come up with so many memories about her it was easy to put it together. The poem ended up turning out really good, or at least I think it did. It allowed me express feelings about my grandma that I would usually not talk about by writing it out.
In memory of my Grandma Carolyn
Grandma, although I can't see you,
I know that you're still here.
Watching down and smiling over me;
Just like you said you'd do.
You were a truly special woman.
A woman of extreme strength, and love,
Remembered for you laughter,
cooking and your special hugs.
Although you could be as stubborn as a mule;
Your suffering became so unbearable to see,
Your disease took everything that you had;
To watch you in pain was so incredibly cruel.
You left this world with dignity and grace;
forever in my heart, lasting memories.
I miss you grandma, your suffering is done.
Until I see you again, go play, go walk,
and most importantly, have fun!
