My Nan

My Nan

My nan was a very special lady,
She was more like a friend to me,
Her hair was short, grey and wavy,
Stood upright and held her head high.

My nan loved me so much,
I was her special granddaughter,
I could tell her my secrets and such,
Her love for me was so strong.

When my uncle died years ago,
I couldn’t show my grief at all,
My nan knew and knew of my tears so,
She cried with me and we hugged.

My nan died twelve years gone,
Sorely missed by me and my family,
Her light went out like the sun,
I miss my nan but I know she is in heaven.

About Philippa

I am married to Rick and we live in a small town in County Durham. We have two dogs, a cat and two budgies. I am also an adoption survivor. In 1981 my son was born and I was then forced to surrender him. It took 23 years and reunion for my to find out that my son's adoption was legally known as a forced adoption and illegal but social workers got away with it because mothers didn't know their rights.
