    *be gentle i havent written in a while*
    *there might be a few spelling errors cause i wrote this in the forum*



    She left me the blanket that as a child
    I curled up in and went to sleep
    in her warm arms but she forgot to
    Leave me the songs she sang as she
    Held me close to her body during the
    Cool summer evenings

    She left behind the shovel that we
    Used to gather the snow with to make
    Huge snowmen in the front yard but
    She forgot to leave the warm meals
    And hot coco that greeted me when
    I came inside

    She left me all the pictures and letters
    That friends and family had shared
    With her but she forgot to leave the
    Conversations we held late night
    By the fireplace when I was little

    She left behind old books and magazines
    And newspapers she had read long ago
    But neglected to leave me tissue to whip
    My eyes with as I sift through the books
    And cry

    Its so hard for me to come to grips with
    The realization that she’s gone and lord knows
    I tried but my heart just cant move on
    She said she had given me all she had
    But really alls I ever wanted was for her
    To never leave

    Guess I’ll have to get over it but for now
    Poetry is the way I’ll grieve
