my grandad

I wrote this poem the day of my grandfather's death and read it out at his funeral.

So many things I never got to say
I never guessed you'd be so far away
In my heart you'll always be,
You'll be my guide and help me see

You were always there
To show you did care
You were just like a dad to me
The BEST dad there could be!

I love you so
More than I let you know!
I know things are though right now
But we'll pull through somehow

R.I.P no longer in pain
I love you with every ounce of blood
That runs through each vein
That's why the tears come like a flood!

Sorry I did not stay
To watch you pass away
I had some hope
That through the night you would cope

As the hours and minutes passed
You slipped from us so fast
Now we have to let you rest
Although without you our lives are a mess!

Gone yet not forgotten
Although we are apart,
Your spirit lives within mine
You will forever be in my heart.

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
