About the Poem
When my grandfather died, I had a very difficult time dealing with it. Luckily I had my friends to turn to; this is a poem written by one of my friends for my grandfather.
My grandfather ~ was always so quiet; he never yelled at any of his grand children or scolded us. When he moved next to us I never paid any attention to him, and I now regret that so much! So, my advice to everyone is: never take any one of your relatives or friends for granted, because when they aren't there anymore you will wish so much that you had paid just a little more attention to them. Believe me, I know.

|Clouds are forming in the sky;
I feel like I could lie down and cry.
I miss all the things we used to do,
But knowing that I can't
Makes me realize
How much I loved you.
Family reunions won't be the same;
I miss you so much.
Only time could stop this pain.
I hope you had a wonderful life,
In spite of all those useless fights;
And when it rains I'll think only of you.
There would just be one thing I would do;
I'll get a picture of you and sit on my bed,
And my thoughts would only be of you -
Because in my opinion you are not dead.
All the family misses you,
And I do too.
I can't wait for that one day
When I would be reunited with
