Home

Eyes closing, blanking the blurry
Hands frozen from work,
Lips silent,
Knees stiff, can support no longer
Soul yearning
Yearning for home

BUT THEN

Gazing upon the Glory,
Hands outstretched
A mouth full of praise
Falling upon knees grown young
A soul satisfied

Home.

Well put, HG! Neat to see your deep love for your gramma!
She was blessed to have you as her grandaughter!

This is beautiful and heartbreaking at the same time, yet it made my heart sing. So often, we look at death as the end. When it's really the beginning.
