Grandpa, This One Is For You

Greetings bloggers. How is everyone doing today?

Today I'm going to write a poem, for my grandfather who passed away two months ago. I hope you enjoy it.

The day you died, I wanted to cry. As the tears went down my face, I realized that nobody can take your place.

You had a smile that could reach across the land. You used to play an instrument in a army band.

As I sit here feeling sad, I can say you were the best grand-dad.

You taught me everything I know. When I was feeling sick, you knew how to put on a show.

When you died, I thought I lost a friend. Then I realized you were holding my hand.

You may be gone forever, but there’s a place for you in my heart that will stay forever and ever.

Your laughter will still live on for life. I know right now you miss your wife.

But you’re up there in Heaven watching from above. Everytime I look up I see a white dove.

And when I see a white dove fly by, I start to get teary eyed.

You were there when I needed you the most, so as I sit here, I'm raising you a toast.

A toast for you, and all the fun times we had, and now that you’re gone, I still feel sad.

You made me happy and made me mad, but to me, you were the best grand-dad.

Now it's time to say goodbye, but wherever I go you’re always in my eye.

So as you lay to rest, I just wanted you to know your the best.

Thank you for sharing your memories with us, and putting a smile on my face,

I know you'll never be out of place.

Remember the time we took a road trip together? I saw a bird with beautiful feathers.

Now your in heaven, making castles out of sand, thanks for watching me playing drums in the band.

I know your watching us, above in the clouds, I just want to say, that I'm very proud to call you my own, and now, your back home.

So as I sit here, and thinking all the good times we had, I can't help myself to be glad.

I'm glad that I've gotton to know you all these years. So sit back relax, and enjoy a nice cold beer.

Everytime that I feel sad, I just remind myself, all the fun times I had.

So, go fly with your angel friends, and don't worry, everybody is in good hands.

I love you grandpa your the best, and now go rest.
