Grandpa's Little Silly

He was always there for her right from the very start,
This precious little girl captured his heart,
Though they shared no blood and skin color wasn't the same,
little Eme knew him by only one name,
Grandpa she'd say, I love you so much,
It would go right to a place that only she touched,
He'd call her his silly and she'd give him a smile,
But his time with her was just a short while,
Quintin left this world the day after Eme turned three,
Leaving so many wondering how could this be,
But Eme still says I love you grandpa and she says it extra loud,
'Cause she wants Grandpa Quintin to hear it from way up in the clouds,

I never got to meet my Grandfather or my Grandmother.
There both in heaven, my mother tells my wonderful stories, grandfather delivered the mail and grandma tending house kids as they did in those days. Italy a town called Rosette they had camp fires, they go to corner bakery the only one. I wish I met them so I could have my own memories. My mom said grampa and grandma told the kids stories took them to church and fairs, Easter was a big celebration.
