Goodbye Grandma

Dear grandma,

I'm sitting next to you. You were sleeping peacefully. Now you're a little restless, but seem to have settled looking at the picture of your... Our... Family.

You held my hand for a minute. You looked at me without seeing me. Overall you just seem tired. Like you're tired of waiting. Ready to move on. Ready to be with grandpa again.

The nurses put on your favorite music. Nurses stop in. The doctor and chaplain stop by. Everyone loves you here.

You did so much for so many. Now it's your turn to rest. I love you. And I'll miss you. But I know you're going to be where you'll be at peace, and everything will make sense again.
