Today is the anniversary
Of the day we said goodbye
I cried as we talked of times
Past treasures of fleeting memories
You were the first person
To make me feel truly
Welcome that I belonged
Safe in the circle of your arms
Your laughter helped me to find hope
Joking me into seeing the joy
To cast off sorrows
Yet my heart will always
Be heavy with it
On this
The day we said goodbye
I love you Grandma Beth
