New Poets Wednesday - Memories of a Loved One - by Angel Hoppe
I hope you enjoy today's New Poets Wednesday poem featuring Angel Hoppe.
Angel is an online student at Post University in Waterford, CT.
Angel says "I have always found writing to be a way for me to relieve stress, whether it's journaling, poems, or stories. I started writing children’s books with hopes of becoming a published author one day."
Memories of a Loved One
I can hear the laughter of children running on the beach The warm sand between my toes, like a soft sandpaper I hear my Grandma, warning us not to go too deep in the cold water This was my happiest place with her
I stand on the beach where the sand meets the ocean Memories flood my mind as the waves crash around me As the sun shines above me, filling me with warmth and happy thoughts Of days when life was simpler, and love was aplenty
Even though Grandma has left this earth She lives on in our hearts and minds I will continue to visit our happy place To keep the memories of her alive, forever, and always
