Grandfather's Call Home - Poem by niakeva thomas

Mother's in the kitchen, crying hard and long,
Said grandfather is too sick, and he's no longer strong,
Said he had a great struggle, and now God has called him home,

Father is in the bedroom thinking about his past,
Thinking about his father, Oh what a life he had,
His only beloved father has finally been put to bed,

Sister's in the washroom, trying hard not to cry,
Thought she'll miss him very much it's hard for her to lie,
Grandfather had a hard life so we have to say goodbye,

Brother's in the living room, lost without a word to say,
His grandfather is now gone, God why'd you take him away
"Though he has departed now, we'll see him another day, "

But me, I'm in the dining room not crying a single bit,
I loved grandfather so, but I can't lie I must admit,
Though grandfather's gone now doesn't mean that that is it,

A time will come again, when I will see my grandfather's face,
And I won't have to cry anymore; because I know me he will embrace,
Even though grandfather's gone now I'll see him in a better place,
