Nan knew best

by tiffany   Feb 19, 2007


Barely a year has gone by but still I just can't seem,
To believe that you are gone for good, that it hasn't been a dream
I pick up the phone and dial to you but you don't answer now
An old mans voice says "wrong number", but he is wrong somehow
I cant quite figure why you went with so much still to see
New grandchildren and weddings, and a whole new family
I know you were in pain and it was best for you to go
But still I want you here with me and that's selfish I know
But nan you were the one who I could turn to, don't you see?
And even though you're gone in ways I know you're next to me

    I hated pressing the like button here but this was truly beautiful but so sad and the title drew me in as my nan too knew best and though she's been gone 12 years this year it still seems like yesterday my uncle phoned to say he hadn't seen her in a couple of days. That ending is so very powerful. Not many people believe (nor did I) but I went to a spirit medium and my nan came through, the things he said no one could have known, mental.

    Much love

      It's 11 years since we lost her now but still feel exactly like this. So glad she came through for you when you went to a spiritualist. It's not the same as them being physically there but it helps to know they're not totally lost xx
