i wish i had my grandfather back
he died when i was 3 months old
all i have heard of him
is the stories my parents told

my parents always say
he is right here in my heart
but i have that strange feeling
the we are far apart

in my heart
i feel so wrong
we have been apart
for far too long

when i heard your story
i just had to cry
I'll love you no matter what
even on the day that i die

Please wishing star
let me see him once more
he is my lost loved one
that i have adored

    Moving Poem. I can relate to your situation. I have a grandmother that died months before I was born, so I only know her from the stories my parents and other relatives tell and her pictures.

    The poem is well done. Keep up the good work.
