Missing You 9 Years On
A Letter To My Nan
There are days that come as years go by, when I miss you so much more. It feels like only yesterday when we said goodbye, and yet it feels like you’ve been gone forever.
You were always there for me, and you were one of my biggest supporters. You never doubted in me once. You were always there for a hug when I needed one, and you always said exactly what you thought.
You lived with us for all of my childhood, and a large part of my adulthood, too. We were so close, and I always knew that you loved me. You loved me so much, that when you were ill in hospital, when I asked you to keep the NG tube in, you did, even though you hated it and it made you miserable.
It’s been nine years since I last saw you, and I still remember it as clear as day. I don’t think that memory will ever go; it’s indelibly printed on my brain.
I hope you’re up there now, with all the doggies and critters, having the best time.
I miss you so much. I always will, but I’m determined to make you proud.
I love you Nanny.
