Goodbye, Grandpa

With my dreams shattered,
I start to cry,
I don’t know why you had to die,
I loved your smile,
It brought me joy,
And now you’re gone,
I want to hide and die,
I’d be with you,
Where ever you went,
But I can’t go there,
My mom and dad need me,
Sorry to let you down,
I know you’ll miss me,
I’ll miss you too’
But this is goodbye,
I’m crying again,
I’m supposed to be strong,
I promised I’d be strong,
You’re in my memories still,
I hope you can hear me,
Goodbye, grandpa

    I love this poem. I lost my beloved grandfather this year on my 16th birthday. I still haven't gotten over the loss. This poem fits my experience almost perfectly. Thank you for writing such a meaningful and amazing poem. (Report) Reply

    I felt the way you fell when i lost my granma 2005, to make things worst, i did not have the chance to tell her goodbye, but you do. Its a nice poem, what i'll prefer to call a natural self expression. Etebom (Report) Reply

The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
