You were always there

We used to visit
And there you would be
Always sitting, smiling
In that same chair

You’d tell us stories
And give your opinions
Try to convince us that you were right
Even when you knew you weren’t

So smart
And fun loving
You were always there
Playing your practical jokes

I was only young
And sometimes overlooked
But with you
I always felt special

We used to visit
And you
were
always
there

Now I’m grown up
Living my life the best I can
The knowledge, love and understanding you gave me
Helps so much every day

And we still visit
But you’re not there anymore

You were always there
