Grandpa

She glowed
Like a little star in his hand
She shimmered
And murmured as babies can
She held his finger
With all her might
It was his turn
To feed her at night

He gave her a bottle
Of warm milk
Kissed her cheeks
They felt like silk
Sang her a song
A nursery rhyme
Kissed her goodnight
Life was fine

Filled with joy
Cuddling in her arms
Spoke to her gently
She was so calm
A natural bond
There did exist
From the first time he held her
His first baby kiss

She sprung up in a heartbeat
First two and then four
Before he could stop her
She ran out the door
Wanted her friends
In her life
Soon someone
Wanted to make her his wife

The years passed so quickly
But his love stood strong
Always singing her praises
Never forgot the song
She was always proud
To have such a Dad
And gave him a grandson
He was so glad

He held his grandson
Close to his heart
A picture of his daughter
From the start
He sang him a song
A nursery rhyme
And loved him so much
All of the time

The bond with his daughter
Now passed onto her son
They became so close
Grandpa was fun
He was smart
An intellect his Grandson realized
What he saw was love
In his Grandpa’s eyes

Again, the years passed quickly
And Grandpa got sick
Life wasn’t happy
It seemed like a trick
Daughter and Grandson
Cried on that day
When in a coffin
He was carried away

In a Mausoleum
His body does stay
But his soul flew with the Angels
As they prayed
He looks down at the two he loved
Wants them to know he still exists
Blows down from Heaven
A loving kiss
Sometimes his cologne
Can be smelled in a room
He only brought happiness
Never gloom

Grandpa smiles
As he sings his song
A nursery rhyme
He sings all night long
Dance with Mom
And the Angels too
In Heaven so peaceful
Remember we love you

Grandpa
