"The Memory Dress"

Immanuel Lutheran Day School
St. Louis County, MO

It sits on a hanger in my closet
Looking so beautiful and delicate
All yellow with pink flowers on it
When I look at it
It makes me remember her on that very sad day
My Grandma looked so beautiful
The way she laid in the casket, it made me cry
We drove in the limo to the cemetery
It was raining
My dress started to get muddy at the bottom
While standing there watching the men bury her
Every time I look at the dress hanging in my closet
I think of that day
