I remember her delighted smile
She made anyone and everyone laugh
I remember my dad giving me the news.
The world went silent,
As I was watching cartoons with my little brother.
My grandma had passed away.
The family knew it was coming,
Alzheimers was slowly taking away her life,
Like a friendship that was slowly growing apart.
I remember the last time she said "I love you" to me,
Even though she didn't recognize me,
She knew that she loved me and
She knew I was important to her.
