Old but Young


I heard the bad news

I heard that my granny is unwell

And that her case was critical

All I wanted was to go and see her

I had to see her

Although I am so far away

I am not in the same country anymore

I am not so close to her like before

But I decided that I have to see her

Even though I’ll leave my kids

All alone, first time to do this

But it was something that I had to do.

I arrived there the following day

I went running to see her before it’s too late

I was so worried that I wouldn’t make it on time.

And then what did I see? Who did I see?

Where is my granny?

Who is this body lying on bed in this hospital?

Yes she has the same resemblance

Although with great difference

But where is the life of my granny

Where is her soul and being?

She was supposed to be living.

I didn’t see my sweet granny

I didn’t see the one I know

And now that it’s time for me to go

I feel so bad, unsafe, terrified and so low.

Where is my granny? I want to see her, hold her, kiss her, hug her

And I want her to feel me too, and then I can go.

Will I be able to see her again?

I really really don’t know.
