Shirley Christine Sisson: Where did you go?

Updated on January 19, 2015

I lost my grandmother a week ago and the question that hits you when you lose a love one is, where do they go? This is to my grandmother who I know is in a better place now. She is home and I cannot be sad for that. I will miss her here with me, but in my memories, she will always be with me.

I would not be the person I am today without you. You saved me in more ways than one. To a person who showed me that one person can change the world. I love you.

The good always go
Where they are meant to be
Off to the maker...
Finally free
Free from the pain
They have felt for so long
Back to the arms
Of a man so strong
Off in the distance
There is a light to go
Shining and winking
Pushing ahead so slow
Walk towards the light
Away from the dark
The difference is elemental
Changes so stark
No more fear in this place
No more wires and Docs
No more sugar to check
No more doors to lock
She is free from it all
Envy felt deep
Always be remembered
Her memories we keep
We that are left
Struggle to find
Reason in it all
Question in kind
It isn’t supposed to be
She shouldn’t be gone
But remember all
She has been waiting so long
Longer than imagined
Longer than us
She went to the Lord
Of that you should trust
Whether you believe
Know that she is there
Standing in Heaven
With no more despair
Watching us all
A smile on her face
The love that she brought
Shan’t be replaced
