Love you, loved you, always will.

Today would’ve been my grandmothers 100th birthday. I lost her two years ago, two Christmases ago, two of everything ago.

It’s amazing how much someone can still hurt after two entire years.

It’s not how many gifts you’re buying or how clean your house is or how many hours you put in at work. It’s the people in your life that count. It’s the moments you spent with them. The things you shared, said, did.

This is for my grandmother.

I Love You, Loved You, Always Will

Today I weep, I weep for you
I weep for things that won’t come true,
I weep for what was had, now lost
I weep because this is the cost.

I loved you then, I love you now
I’ll love you until there’s no sound,
I’ll love you ‘til the earth is still
I love you, loved you, always will
