Grandfather Death Poem

I wrote this a few years back in the memory of my Grandpa. We were really close, I was sleeping in his hospital bed with him while he died...

My Best Friend<3

He was my Grandpa
He was 72
And I was 11
He was my Grandpa
He was old and wise
And I was young and still learning
One day he got sick with cancer
I had hoped he would survive
He was my Grandpa
I was with him everyday
He was my Grandpa
I was there with him when he left
He was my Grandpa
But even more he was my Best Friend.
