I'm so sad

My beloved Grandmother passed a few minutes around midnight of January 16, 2010. She suffered from cancer of pancreas.
I have no words to tell you, how sad I am.

In loving Memory of my Grandmother
*22.06.1940 + 16.01.2010

Lay down
Your sweet and weary head
Night is falling
You’ve come to journey's end
Sleep now
And dream of the ones who came before
They are calling
From across the distant shore

Why do you weep?
What are these tears upon your face?
Soon you will see
All of your fears will pass away
Safe in my arms
You're only sleeping

What can you see
On the horizon?
Why do the white gulls call?
Across the sea
A pale moon rises
The ships have come to carry you home

And all will turn
To silver glass
A light on the water
All souls pass

Hope fades
Into the world of night
Through shadows falling
Out of memory and time
Don't say: «We have come now to the end»
White shores are calling
You and I will meet again

And you'll be here in my arms
Just sleeping

And all will turn
To silver glass
A light on the water
Grey ships pass
Into the West

Into the West - by Annie Lennox

I'm so sorry to heard about your loss! My Nan passed away in February 2005 and I miss her everyday. I know it might not seem it at the moment but it does get easier. She will always be with you no matter where you.

I send my love to you and the rest of your family x
