As we lay you down for an eternal sleep
your family cannot help but weep
for we have said our long farewell
now you're under heavens spell
we will see you again of that I'm sure
be a complete family again, forevermore
but for now we shall all grieve
wondering why you had to leave
we'll reminisce of times gone by
we'll cry at having said goodbye
we'll remember the good alongside the bad
we'll remember the happy alongside the sad
we'll look to the skies smile knowingly at those beautiful stars
for we know Grandad back with Nan, up there, is where you are
hmm, this reminds me very much of the writing style of a young lady who is no longer with us on site, sadly, and who is much missed. I believe she was suffering from a family loss as well.
Anyway, I am very sad to hear of your particular loss and I am glad that you can express it so well with such smooth rhyming and accomplished vocabulary.
