To my loving grandpa


Feelings of mourning which is a bit sad
Tht we have all lost our grandpa as well as our dad
Its been to long since we've lost u, but we still cry ocean of tears
Without u, we feel empty and we all hold many fears

I know that grandpa is watching us with a smile on his face
And wants us to know that he is in a good place
He has raised a very large and beautiful family
And I hope that we have made him proud, proud as can be

Thinking back now, there are things I must say
I was very young,
but still feel privileged to have known him to this day
My lil brother may not have meet you yet
But he knows about your greatness, and he wishes he could’ve meet
For in our lives you have always played a special part
Your love, your duty as a dad and grandpa we’ll always keep close to our hearts
But its been quite long now and our family is still together
Your spirit will live on in our family forever and ever
When I look to the sky,
I always look for the brightest star
And I know that is you grandad looking down at us from afar
To conclude, I would like, to thank the good lord from above
To have known our grandpa long enough, to witness his love
He is responsible for a very big family
We all miss you and love you unconditionally
So God I must ask you for a favour to do for us,
To take extra special care of our grandpa, becoz he means a lot to us.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
