Poem to My Grandson
He leave behind his loving grandma Denise
Who called him Jamuka when he was a baby
Then because of his love of music, I called him "Jazzy."
Though I was Grandma, he was my baby and will always be.
My heart is broken like it will never mend,
But I know he walked into the open arms of my people
Who were waiting at the gates of Heaven.
Now he is an Angel.
"Jazzy" Thank you for saving my life
