Tears won't bring you back to me,
I know because I've cried.
Lying won't bring you back to me,
I know because I've lied.
Fighting won't bring you back to me,
I know because I've tried.
Hiding all the pain inside won't bring you back,
I've tried, but my heart has something it lacks.
I've thought about our inside jokes,
And I get cold lumps in my throat.
I'm trying to be strong and not so sad,
But papaw, you were like my dad.
I know now you're the brightest star,
And that you're never far.
We all miss you I can tell,
Some people that cried were as tough as nails.
I remember all our little talks,
and moving all those silly rocks.
The sound of your Chevy truck,
And after church all the hands you shook.
I wish I could've said goodbye,
But if you were here, I'd just stall and cry.
Day after day I'll fight for you,
And eventually I'll make it through.
I pray everyday to see you again,
So I can hug the same funny old man.
This poem isn't about just any ordinary guy...it's about my papaw...he was my grandfather but he was like my dad and I would say he was my best friend, he taught be a lot through all the years...I read this poem at his funeral...It took a lot of guts to stand up there and read it...I hope you enjoy it...and get something out of it.
