The Word She Heard

Once upon a time in a land far, far away
There lived a sweet girl who was happy each day

She had a great life and knew nothing more
No expectation of sadness ever darkened her door
Her mother loved her and her father did too
she remained unphased by the divorce they went through

She also had grandparents who truly loved her so
They all happily watched this sweet little girl grow

Surrounded by family, by cousins and friends
How free and friendly her life must have been

Until that Fall day, she would never forget
Her first bout with sadness and later looked on with regret
Her dearly beloved grandmother, colon cancer took her away
This now sad little girl knew not what to say

Hiding under a table as paramedics walked by
Scared and so lost she started to cry

The days that followed she reflected on for many years
Oftentimes somehow unable to even shed tears
