She’s Still With Me

A poem about my grandmother, GiaB writing prompt #2–5 — the elderly

Loved me
I knew it
More than the rest
I was her first one
Who made her a grandma
We’ll bring you a girl, they said
And they placed me in her arms, there
I stay to this day, though she’s long gone
Her unconditional love’s still with me.
