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
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.
