August 3, 12:45-

 was when I found out… 

 

                    4.45 hours after I asked to take a picture with her so that I could remember her… she was too sick

August 3, 12:45-

 was when…

 

                    I sent a goodnight text

                    “goodnight mom, please tell grandma I love her so very much and I will come visit her again tomorrow”

and in turn received

                    “Oh honey, I am so very sorry,your grandma went to heaven at 12:30 am, she loved you so very much.”

12:46 am-

was when…

 

                    My cheeks were red and hot, the tears pour down my face, my lungs start to burn as I screamed from the pain of loss

                    gasping for air.

 

                    My role model, grandmother, and best friend was gone. 

___________________________________________________________________________________________

Present day-

 

          All I remember now is what she said, the last thing she said, as she took off her mask and gasped for air she said, “you have such

          a wonderful life to live.” 

 

                    This is all I have left, no picture, no stories, no time left. She’s gone, and with her, she takes a piece of me. All I have now is

                     what she said, and the memories of her. The good, the bad, the pain, and the joy. 

 

                    She left and took a piece of me…
