Just a little verse for all those Grandpa's out there who hold a special place in our hearts.

My Grandpa ”

There came the day you went away

But only from sight and sound

I felt my heart break as your soul departed

From that cold, empty ground

You meant more to me than words could say

You filled me with so much love

Each and every time I look to the stars,

I know that you're above

I can feel you watching over me

I hear your soothing voice

God left us here for some unknown plan

Its not for us to ask why

I know you want me to remember you,

And recall every time you smiled

Your smile lighted so many rooms

And even many more hearts

I thank God each and every day

That you were an important part

You gave me something that no-one-else would

The love of you “My Grandpa” because no-one-else could.

Shirley Ann Parkerson

I never knew either of my Grandpas. This piece makes me sad that I didn't have the honor. Beautifuly written tug of the heart strings, I am MOST happy I stumbled onto it. I'll be reading more of your work.........
If you have time, check out my poem called Grandma's Kitchen, I am thinking you might just like it.
