Sickness Poem

We don't want to let go of our loved ones even when it's time.

Grandpa I Love You

© Keali B. Wilbur
Grandpa I love you and I always will.
It makes me so sad to see you so sick,
I wonder why you were god's pick?
maybe because you were such a good man
Or maybe because he has his own little plan.
whatever it is it's hard to see you this way,
Do you remember when we used to play?
Or when we used to sit and talk all day?
I don't know what I'll do without you, or if I will ever get by.
Everybody tells me its going to happen sooner
or later I don't want to have to say good-bye.
I know that you will be a lot happier and a lot less confused,
But when it comes time for me to say my last good-bye, I will think to myself and remember that god has a plan and everything will work out in the end.
I just want you to know that I will love you forever and always.

  • I cried when I read this. My grandpa recently died of cancer and it was so hard because he was like my second dad and we did everything together and I'll love him forever and I wish he was still here. He was the best and it was one of the hardest things in my life to see him whither away like he did. I love you, Grandpa.

  • This is a really touching poem. My Grandad funeral was yesterday and I played a trumpet selection for him. I miss him so much, never going to be the same R.I.P Clifford Rahming! :(

  • My grandad is currently in hospital with a worsening case of cancer! it isn't certain he is going to die but he is not it a good place at all! We live far away and I don't see him often at all but I miss him so much and still can't think of life without him! This poem brought me to tears! I cried so hard it hurt! I love my grandad so much and don't want him to go but I pray he fights on and he beats this mean battle! X
