To Nana

You were always a comfort to me

I knew that when I was with you

Everything would be alright

I looked forward to the Canadian summers

And a little later the Canadian winters

You always made your house a home for us

I never wanted to leave when it was time to go back

You showed me real love

And made me feel warm

With your smiles

And your stories

And your homemade apple pies

Sometimes I felt like I had so much love

For you that I would burst

And I was afraid there wouldn't be anymore

Love left

I appreciate everything you have ever done for me

All I do is remember the sunny summer days

And your flower garden

How you taught me lessons

On how to love

I didn't follow your lessons

All the time

I wish you were still here

So you can be proud of me

I wish I listened to you when you told me

Not to go or when you knew just the right

Time to call when I was crying and alone

You knew it all

I hope you still see me now

And see how much I love you

And how much I miss you

And how I had wished things were

Different those last days...

I wish I had been different.

Less selfish and consumed

By someone who isn't right for me

Help me learn

Because I feel trapped

All of your stories...

Still swirl around in my head

I love you Nana.
