55-My Grandmother

I was small and she was so old,
When we last, had a talk.
She was wise and cared for me nice,
Feeding, Comforting and helping me bath

All went fine, until the time,
Destiny took her far from me.
Still she lives, near to my heart,
With the memories of those good times.

This is my friday flash 55 attempt.Hope you find it interesting :) .
This weekly meme is brought to you by G-Man, over at
Mr. Know it All. The object is to write a story or prose in exactly 55 words.


  1. I love the posts that convey a memory. Grandmothers have that ability to love us in a special way. Thank you for sharing that loving memory.

  2. This was lovely! I too had written an ode to my grandma on her 1st death anniversary a coupla months ago... and your poem here once again totally reminded me of those treasured memories with my grand mom..
    Thank you for sharing this one.. a lovely tribute in 55 words!!!

  3. That was a lovely poem in honor of your beloved grandmother. I have only ever known one of my grandparents as they all passed before I was born, except for my mothers mother, so she holds a very special place in my heart. I was lucky to have had the opportunity to visit with her this weekend just past as she lives 17 hours away from me. A grandmothers love is a very special love. Thank you for visiting my blog & becoming a follower. Have a great weekend.
