  5. No words I write can ever say, how much I miss you everyday. As time goes by the loneliness grows, how much I miss you, nobody knows. I think of you in silence, I often speak your name. But all I have are memories and a photo in a frame. No one knows my sorrow. No one sees me weep. But the love I have for you is in my heart to keep. I’ve never stopped loving you, I know I never will. Deep inside my heart you are with me still. Heartaches in this world are many, but mine is worse than any. My heart still aches as I whisper low, ” I love you and miss you so.” The things we feel so deeply are often the hardest to say. But I just can’t keep quiet anymore, so I’ll tell you anyway. There is a place in my heart that no one else can fill. I love you so much Granny and I always will!
