About the Poem
My grandfather passed away on June 4, 1999. He was the first person that was close to me that I have lost. He was 81 years old and a very great man. He will be missed by many. This poem comes from my heart and is inspired by how much I miss him already.
|Today something happened that I thought never would.
I wish it could be undone, oh, if it only could.
I realize the memories I've made will be all there is.
My grandfather's memories, mine and his.
See, my grandfather passed away today and will never be back.
And now it's moments with him that I will sadly lack.
He won't be here to see me get my license or my car.
See me go to prom or graduate, because he is so far.
But I guess he's in a better place.
He resides in Heaven, and is surrounded by God's grace.
Now he can watch over me throughout the night and day.
And I can pretend that he's not really away.
He can stay with me in a place inside my heart.
And of me, he can still be a part.
