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

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
