Poem: Her Garden of Life

(For my Nan. She passed away before Cyro got home from the hospital.)

Her Garden of Life

Sitting still in her living room
With her husband and her furniture,
I beg to make the cookies,
I wish to stay the night,
I hope the fresh veggies are ready.

Working hard in her great yard
With her flowers and her plants,
I feel my hands and knees ache,
I see the beauty she creates,
I hear the animals celebrate.

Dancing to the music in her world
With her friends and her family,
I take another twirl around her,
I request to stay a little longer,
I grin at how happy she is, and
I am glad to be one of her closest friends.
