It has been over 10 years since you left us
I have grown up from the naive girl
I crave your advice.
I miss the days we would take drives and you would analyze everyone
I miss all the silly jokes you would tell me
I miss the sternness you had and the funny way you taught me things
Looking at your picture everyday
I can almost hear your laugh, see you smile, feel you hold my hand as you look me in the eye and say nikee….
I remember the day you threw the maize cobs at me and I laughed myself to stitches
Your expression was to die for…. J
As the days go by I think about you more and more
I haven’t got married yet
Actually, I haven’t found the right man
Anyway, I am not in a hurry
I still remember what you told me
The qualities you told me are what I look for.
I have a little girl
She has a gap in the teeth just like you
She smiles like you
She is totally adorable
I know if you had met her you would have fallen in love with her.
You are a great grandmother posthumously
We miss you.
*Dedicated to my Nana
