Paw Paw - Poem by Randi Nicole Dement

We lost our Paw Paw one November day,
He went to heaven, before I got to say,
I love you and thank you for all you've ever done,
You gave me my Mother, a mom like no-one!

I wonder can you see us from way up there?
Cause sometimes I sit and stare,
Up at that big blue sky and talk to you,
I hope and wish that you are not blue.

I saw you that morning before you left us, and you said to me,
You loved me and were proud of me, God I wish I could have seen!
I wish you were still here, I miss you so damn much,
you always made me smile, with your picking and such.




The girls are getting so very big and tall,
We show them pictures, so they remember all,
the holding and playing you did, loving them with all your might.
When God picked you as a Paw Paw, he sure picked right!

Black boots, hats, shirts and jeans,
Anything else, you weren't so keen,
Your coffee was always as black as the clothes you wore,
Oh, how you loved that Dot Candy Maw Maw got you at the store.

I wonder, did God get you a set of black wings?
Cause you won't wear white, as the angels sing.
I know your up there, looking down on us,
As I am sure, somethings probably making you cuss! !

Its hurts that your gone, so very, very sad,
You were a Paw Paw, a Husband, and a Dad.
Maw Maw sure loves you with all of her heart,
She hurts everyday, now that you've part.

I know we will all see you again one day,
For now, the memories will have to ease the hearts deep pain,
I am so thankful that God watched over you that day,
and took you in his arms, to ease the pain away.
