About the Poem

I wrote this poem while grieving over my grandfathers death. I didn't know how to cope because I have never had anything like this happen to me before. I found that by expressing my words in writing that it had a magical affect on my life.

I Miss You

I miss you, PawPaw, very much,
You gave my life a special touch;
You did get angry and you did get mad,
But when you were gone I was nothing but sad;
Now that you've left I feel there's nothing more,
A piece of my heart, I felt was torn;
I went to see you I really did try,
But I knew it would be our last good-bye;
I saw your Angel she opened my eyes,
Even since then, I'm not afraid to cry;
I carry your Angel here by my side,
It is in her, that I can confide;
I know one day we'll be together,
I will long for that day forever and ever.

That poem was so sweet! My Poppy passed away a few years ago and this poem is helping me cope with his death better. My friend told me (when I got mad at her) that I should move on. Not let go but move on. I think I should do that too. I just don't know if I can do that. But I will try.
I lost my Granda yesterday and I am hoping that your poem will help me too.

I just lost my PAP on the 5th of Feb. 2006. The hardest thing I had to endure this year. I miss him already. Just wanted to know this poem really hit home at this time of my life.

this poem really has touched me. i lost my grandfathers 2 weeks apart about 4 months ago and nothing has been the same, being that i am only 15 this has become a big struggle for me. thanks for making me understand that i can survive this.
This poem made me think about not being able to see my gandpa before he died because i wasn't born yet but i still think of him all the time & enjoy hearing storys about him. i really enjoyed hearing this poem. i really liked it a lot.
i love this poem ever and ever.

I really liked yur poem. I was just looking up poems on death to get an idea of how to wrie a poem and express my feeling towards my grandfather who died on saturday september 27, 2003 and i came across yours. Also it's the first time that someone so close to my family died it is very hard to coup with this. my condolence goes out to you and your family.

Even though this poem was written by you for your grandfather, it is exactly how I have felt since last Sept. 19th when I lost my Father to cancer. I looked to the computer for poetry that I could use for the remembrance I am to have printed in our local newspaper on the anniversary of his death. When I read this poem I knew it was the one. I am not good at expressing my feelings through words, but you did a wonderful job explaining mine and my Father's relationship. I am deeply touched by your work! Thank you so much for your help!
I really enjoy it. It makes me cry, I lost my grandma last year and then grandpa this year and it really breaks my heart to know that they are gone. I really miss them a lot.
my grandfather passed yesterday, thank you for the beautifull poem, i was with him through the whole thing up until his angel took his hand and flew up to heaven. godbless you
i really loved this poem. i lost my paw-paw June13,2001 just a couple of years ago . that was the hardest thing that i have ever had to go through. i've lost many other people in my life but no body compared to my paw-paw . i know exactly how you feel . and i was only 16, and i just graduated and that was hard enough to not see him face to face there. and i'm his first g-child. but thank you for this poem its very good and made me feel better. God bless ! and no matter what just remember that he is still here with you even though you cant see him and dont be afraid to talk to him . hang in there !
Melisa I understand how you feel when loosing your grandad. I lost my grandad juts three days before the war broke out in my country and we didn't have time to grieve which always hurt me. I dream him very often and it is very hard but by the time you will get over the pain. I like your poem very much.
Melissa Iknow how you feel my gandfather deid about a year ago . I realy didn't Knowhim but when he did it felt like i had lost a part of me.
thank you,i lost my grandad on 7th dec 2001,5months ago. i still miss him so much i hurt,sometimes it hurts so bad i think i will die. but life gose on and if one thing the last few months have taught me is im afriad to die but not because of what i may feel but i cant bare the people i levave behind to feel the way i do now and not be able to help i know if my nan and grandad where here now they would put there arms around me and tell me it will be ok but without them it wont your poem was beautifull
my boyfriend breoke up with me after a year and a half dont know why.he is always on my mind he wrote a letter gave it to my brother to give to me.i saw him yesterday the feelingsd and memories are always on my mind.the only reason why i can think of is a long distance relationship dont always turn out.
Melissa, I think your poem is really beautiful. We laid my Pawpaw to rest 2 weeks ago today. Like you I have never had anything like this happen to me before. Thank you, your poem made me feel a whole lot better!
It has now been 6 years since the death of my PawPaw, i have learned to cope but even though its been so long, there are times that i can't hold back the tears. thank you all for taking time to read this and i am glad it has some meaning to you too. Love always, Melissa (the author).
this is an awesome poem.i lost my grandfather about 5 months ago, and it has been total hell for me. this poem made me cry when i read it, but it helps me cope with this sad reality that i have to go through
this is a beautiful poem. you should write more and post them. ever think about publishing?
