I wouldn't wish for you to come back to me, just come see me in my dreams Grandma. Even if it's just once. Let me see your radiant face again. And hold your hands in mine. Let me tell you how beautiful you are, and how much I love you. Let me kiss you and be wrapped up in your warm embrace grandma.
To inhale your scent of olives and Peppermint. To hear you laugh again and say my name the way you used to. And let me rest my head on your thighs while you tell me stories. To hear you sing and taste your cooking. Please, Grandmami, give me a chance to say all the things I should have said, and apologize for all I shouldn't have said to you. Please, at least give me a chance to say goodbye.
