These are the lessons

life’s little reminders

that nothing’s forever

so take off your blinders

Don’t take it for granted

because life is so fragile

and the love that you share

is utterly crucial

You think you have time

so you put off the call

but the years slip by

and you miss it all

I haven’t been an attentive Grandaughter

and now our time is being ravaged

I can’t take back my mistakes

but there are memories I can still salvage

I’ve spent so much time dwelling

when all along the only answer

was to accept our differences

because now she’s being taken by cancer.
