In Memory Poem

My grandpa died two years ago and it got me thinking about the ones still here. His death made me realize I want to tell people how much they mean to while I still can. It isn't the best poem, but I'm glad I wrote it.

For Mom

Look forward to tomorrow
Please don't be afraid
Don't fill it with sorrow
Because we had today

We may not have had enough time
But it was filled with joy
So don't spend the rest cryin'
What we have will not be destroyed

I hope you cherish these days
The way I surely have
And I hope you won't let them fade away
No matter how sad

Because I believe
These are the best
No matter how bad the grief
We had better than the rest

So when I am gone
I hope you will remember
That you were my number one
And my love for you will go on forever.
