That Room Without You

I CAN NEVER FORGET the sadness that washed over me, coming home from school that day with her bed no longer in the room we shared. Having lived with us all my life, the house felt emptier, lonelier, without her.

I was already in college when my grandmother moved out of our home, for complicated and recurring issues she had with my parents. I still saw her every now and then but having been in her mid-90's, there really weren't many years left to her.

It's been over five years since she passed. I have not stopped missing her.

Happy birthday lola. I remember you always.
