Troy Clark And Neal Simons

(Troy-Jan 3rd 1991: Neal-sept 7th 1990 / Hospital)

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

    this piece of wonderful poetry you wrote, it really a heart felt tribute to your grandfather. I lost my grandfather in 1970 and my grandma in 1969 and it does hurt, you never forget them. this poem really showed how you felt, you wrote it very well. (Report) Reply

There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
