grandad


Oldest grandad up above,
You were the one i truly loved,
Loved you did for ninety five years,
When you left there were many a tear.

You were like the dad i never had,
not a nasty word, would you have said,
One day you hoped i would wed.

Wed you were for sixty five year,
To a beautiful lady, nana so dear.
Dear, she was, that has to be said
oh, i'm so confused, inside my head.
Why you had to go, i don't know
One thing i know is your up above, not down below.


Dedicated to my grandad Tom, who was took away xmas 06.
goodnight, godbless, you were the very best xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    i feel for you, i have lost so many of my family, it hurts i know, but you wrote a very beautiful poem for your granddad and i am sure if he would have been here now it would have moved his heart, the way it did mine. (Report) Reply
