Hi Friends,

It’s been three years since my granny passed away. I miss her so much that I feel a part of me is already dead. She was the sweetest woman I have ever known all my life. She always addressed everyone as dear child, or sweetie pie. She never knew the concept of being angry or holding a grudge against anyone. She would sympathise with every creature including mosquitoes, snakes and rats and could never see anyone in pain. Her name is Swarna which means gold. She was indeed a pure gold for all our family members.

My grandma
The four generations together. I am the one wearing glasses, my mother is in the right with my daughter and grandma on the left.

A tribute to my Grandmother

An angel of love was recalled by Heaven, 

 No one can be like her in all the births seven, 

 Her nectar-like words and her smiling face, 

 Will be etched in my memories always.

 True to her name, she had a heart of gold, 

 She was and still is loved by everyone young or old.

 She was an epitome of kindness and a devout woman

 She never spoke ill of others in her entire lifespan. 

 She continued to smile even when she was in pain, 

 Such an adorable person can never be found again.

 She was a wonderful wife and a great mother, 

 She kept our family bound together, 

 By the bonds of love, patience, and trust.

 Now her mortal remains have turned to dust.

 But in our hearts, she will continue to live, 

 Teaching us to love each other and forgive, 

 Our shortcomings and stay together for life, 

 And how to be an ideal husband and wife.

 Her blessings will always be with us, I know.

 Physically, she may not be here though.

She passed away on 11 March 2019. But since I normally publish poems on Thursday, I have presented it today. 

Thank you so much for taking your precious time to visit my website. Hope you enjoyed reading my blogs. 😊😊

  1. Your family has very strong genetics. You look so much like your mother and grandmother. And don’t be sad, you carry a part of your grandmother in you always.
