A Little Background on This Poem

I wrote this poem when I was 11 years old, after my grandma Nelda passed away from lung cancer. I hope you enjoy it and it blesses you!

This is just one of many poems included in my new poetry book, which is now available for purchase on Amazon.com! Please see below. I am really excited about this new venture. Hope you enjoy!

It Won't Be Long

Sometimes it's because of old age

Sometimes it's just their time

But for every single death

There's a reason and a rhyme.

And it's okay to be upset

And it's alright to cry

Just as long as you know

Christians never truly die.

People who are believers

Are with the Lord above

There is no sorrow up there

Only joy and love.

So even though it's hard to part

Though only for a while

It won't be long before the reunion--

And you will see them smile.

Written in 1997 by Nicole Kiddie Granath

Thank you, Billy! I think writing it was cathartic for me as a pre-teen. It still encourages me as an adult, too. Thanks for your kind comment.
