This poem is from Ryan’s sister, who was 9 at the time of her Gran’s death.
Her grandmother was a big part of her life and she couldn’t understand where she had gone or why.
My father told her to write her grandmother a letter. This is what she has written.
A Funeral Eulogy poem from a child.
Gran, I asked my dad why you went away
And why I couldn’t come to see you anymore?
My dad got upset, but told me that you have gone to a better place
But I still don’t know why you had to go.
I wanted you to stay Gran, so we could go out
Like when we used to go shopping and to the park.
But my dad said that you were ill, and you had to go away.
My dad said that heaven is where the good people go,
And that you would be the first in the line.
I hope you are Gran, because you are a good person.
Even though you are not here anymore, I still love you.
I wish you were here.
My dad said that you are better where you are, that you are not sick.
I hope it’s true.
He also said that if I wrote you this letter
And read it to myself in my room
That you would hear me
That it would be my way to say goodbye.
I don’t want to say goodbye Gran
And I cry when I do
But my dad said that it’s the best thing to do for you
And that you will always love me.
So goodbye Gran.
I will always love you too.
