Grandpa's Poem.

Every single day
That you are not here
Will break my heart
’Cause you were so dear

When I was little
We were thick as theives
Inseperable, even
I never wanted to leave

Over the years
You were there for me
You’re who I wanted when I was sick
The only face I wanted to see

I needed your reassurance
That I would be ok
“Just look at my big ol’ nanner nose
Was all you had to say

You always cheered me up
When I was down and sad
Always made me smile
When I was ill and mad

When I think of all the things
That we didn’t do
Everthing, it makes me cry
Especially just thinking of you

Just to have those memories
Just to have those thoughts
Mean more to me than anything
You’ve ever given me, or bought

I spent most of my life with you
I never tought you’d go
You were my hero, my superman
The person I was glad to know

Just thinking of your smiling face
Makes me all teary eyed
But then again, on top of that
It’s helping me get by

I love you, and I miss you, Gramps
Just like all the jokes and smiles
I know, one day, I’ll be with you
If I have to crawl a million miles

Your life was long
And full of great love
Now all we can do, is think of you
And know you’re smiling from up above
