My sweet and kind Baba (Grandmother in Croatian) tragically lost her life today on the 2nd of September at 5:30pm. She suffered terribly from tongue cancer and died of a heart attack in the end....I stayed by her side all day, holding her hand and comforting her until she passed.
I've cried all night while writing this poem I made for her funeral.
R.I.P my darling Baba Kata, I'll love and miss you forever and ever more....
Baba, although we cannot see you,
We know you're forever beside us.
Your Endi, Simon, Neda and I,
Will forever keep you in our hearts.
And although this pain is painful,
We're glad you didn't die alone.
We held your hand right through the end,
Until the moment your soul had flown.
So dance and sing high up Baba,
High up in heaven's gates.
We'll kick your wheelchair to the curb,
Because you're finally free from pains and aches.
I'm thankful you're at peace now Baba,
You didn't deserve such pain.
I hope to see you in my dreams tonight,
As I pray you'll come back to me again.
I promise to keep your name alive,
My darling Baba Kata.
Forever I plan to commemorate your life,
Your darling Kata-rina.
My belated condolences for the lost of your grandmother. Your poem is such a wonderful memorial for her!
So sorry! may she rest in peace.
I'm sorry for your loss
so sorry to hear that my condolences. keep strong
