I will not stop dreaming, I promise to your sparkling eyes.
I will not be afraid to try, I promise to your witty smile.
I will fight and fight, I promise to you and your life.
I will always smile and let it go, I promise to your last good bye.
Words are not enough.
Moments were never enough.
Wanted to stay with you a little longer.
Wanted to hear your voice a bit more.
You were that grandmother I could get upset with.
You were that grandmother who could bring my smile back.
You truly were my mother’s mother.
With the same hearts beating together.
‘Maami, I love you’, I used to say.
You said ‘it was for lovers’ and you were shy.
Then you would repeat ‘I love you too’.
After I explained we are lovers too and why.
Relationships are not always smiles.
But togetherness is what remains.
Your tales are never ending.
Your heart a pure gold.
As you truly rest in peace.
I promise to keep you alive.
In my memories.
And my endless tales.
