Grandfather Poem

This is a poem that I wrote for my grandpa on his 81st birthday. He is no longer here with me, but I know that he is reading this poem up in heaven.

What Is A Grandpa?

What is a Grandpa?

A grandpa is a father; a grandpa is a son.
A grandpa is a husband; all grandpas are loved.
Some grandpas have hair, while others are bald.
Some grandpas fish, and others like hunting.
A grandpa can be more than just a grandpa though.
A grandpa can be a friend who knows how to have fun.
All grandpas are special to many other people.
But no other grandpa is just like mine.
Grandpas are unique in many different ways.
No two grandpas are alike.
My grandpa might not be like he is now,
But even if that happened I know one thing that's true.
My grandpa will always be a special person to me.
