In honor of my grandfather.

by Bluey!   Oct 11, 2005

I cry my heart out, rivers of tears.
Your life ended, at eighty eight years.
I honor you now, with these simple words.
I can't explain, how much I miss you.
You left this world, not too long ago.
I know I never told you..
Damnit grandpa, I love you so.

You may be gone, but not forgotten.
In my heart you will live, in my memory
you will still be that big strong man who
made me feel safe.
You always put me first.
You always made me feel so good.
I will miss you, my grandfather.
You left something else, when you passed away.
A big empty hole in my heart.

Grandpa... I'll see you soon... My tears may dry.
But your memory will remain, hidden within me.
From my heart you can never go.

(This poem may not rhyme at all, doest matter, its a salute to my dear grandfather, thats what matters)
