2nd Place Winner of Summer 18 Poetry Contest 'Gone, Not Forgotten' by Sparky

Gone, not Forgotten:

I am the mother, of your first great grand baby.

But now I'm consumed, by the "what if's" and "maybes",

The loss I feel is like a disease, my brains gotta have scabies,

The thoughts keep- pickin at me.

Ima spark me a blunt, cloud the whole sky,

So no one- can see me cry.

U were just living to fight,

Tryna get by,

U were done fighting to live,

Somebody tell me why,

Life's gotta be a battle, and then we die?

You were our family back bone,

Now that youre gone we can't stand,

Your heart is my home,

And I'll always love you Gram...
