Two Years Ago
in memory of my Grandma
by: Liz Paez

Two years ago you were taken from me
Your last breath forced out your lungs.
Time goes by so quickly,
and yet-
nothing has been done.
Still no man responsible for ending your life this way
How can I move on when all I do is relive that day.

Its been two years since you left-
that's two years I've gained with you by my side.
That doesn't make it any easier
because i still sit here and cry.
My tears pierce my skin like bullets-
a pain that will never go away.
Stings like the cut of a knife-
burns like the candle's flame.

Two years ago you were taken from me
and yet-
you haven't left.
Your presence is felt around me,
every time air expands my chest.

Its been two years since you left
but I know you are still here.
Your spirit grows within me
with each increasing year.
And if I want to see you, all i do is close my eyes-
for this nightmare I've been living is slowly passing by.
