via Daily Prompt: Premonition


Remember the afternoon Kui
I felt your voice speak to me
You were my guide, my light
my reason, my clarity

Your words were so clear Kui
“was time to meet your maker”
you wanted me to listen, please
to attention and note taker

Your instructions were precise Kui
for when the time was to come
not today, but the fourth day
and from that moment on

I tried to call you Kui
you did not answer your phone
I wanted to say, I love you
one more time, before you go

I know you did not answer
knowing it was me
I would have begged and pleaded
and made it difficult for thee

My, how time has past Kui
thirty-two years this day
Your love has been a treasure
A measure of me today

I know you still watch over me
and whisper in my ear
I feel your voice speak to me
a premonition, I do not fear


Written to my Kui (Grandmother) whom I loved and adored and still inspires me.

  1. 19 years since mine left. Haven’t felt unconditional love ever since. Though I don’t believe or rather don’t know about the afterlife, i sometimes try to connect to her memory, the her that is in me. I must do that more. Thank you.

  2. This is a very nice tribute. My grandmother was the only person in my family who I had an emotional connection with. She passed away when I was 13 but the time we had together is something I always remember fondly. She was a good person but always very sad. I wish she had lived long enough for me to learn what she was keeping inside her.

    1. Thank you for your kind thoughts. I was 26 when she died and fortunate to have been old enough to “really get to bond with her” My thoughts of her wisdom still guide me today and maybe your grandmother does too for you in some way. Thank you for sharing…:) Appreciated!
