Papaw


This poem is dedicated to my grandpa who passed on January of 2007. Rest in Peace.

When you passed away
My heart went with you
Now it's in two
And all I have to say is I miss you

You were the reason why I wanted
To improve my life
You were the reason why I wanted
To be the best person I can be
Now you're gone
And all I want is for you to come back to me

Why did you have to go?
I didn't get a chance to say goodbye
But I know you're in a better place
You're with God in the sky

I know you'll always be watching over me
You're with the sun by day
And with stars by night
My reflection in a puddle
And my beam of light

You were willing to love
And willing to care
And you'd always be the first to be there
There arn't many people like you in the world
Willing to open their hearts to be heard

We love you and miss you
And you'll always be remembered
In our hearts and forever

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
