Nan

Here is a poem I wrote while my nan was in hospital recently. Sadly she passed away and will be remembered and missed by a lot of people...



Fresh and new to enter the world

Your energy knows no boundaries

Take on the day with no fear of tiring

Forever may your body be firing

Your body is a vessel

Unique from all the others

But time will still test

It's protective covers



What a sad place life can seem

Sometimes like a kind of bad dream

Nothing comes for free in this world

You realise that as life unfurls

For the price you pay to experience life

Is to grow old one day which may not be nice



We are like players thrown into a game

Unknowingly all the same

Hopefully we get to play our full ninety minutes

Then a sad goodbye to those who are still in it
