In Memoriam

Tanvi Jeph mourns the passing of her grandmother

PHOTO

He looked at her again and again
Filled with tears and despair
Yet his eyes glimmered with love
 
He was scared that a tear might fall
He looked down, holding them back
Caressing her through the picture
 
A crinkled, dry photo in his hands
It was black and white
Still, it seemed colourful
 
It was a photo of two people
Looking at each other
Holding books in their hands
 
They seemed young but lovers
Wearing sunglasses
Smiling at each other
 
The lady whom he secretly admired
And a man she truly loved
They were real love birds
 
Spent fifty-two years together
But one bird flew away, to heaven,
While other still sits alone, waiting

Tanvi Jeph is a high school sophomore who enjoys writing poetry and riding bicycles. She also has her own organization, The Dried Review, which she founded in April 2022
