Grandfather Death Poems

Loss of Grandpa Poems

It has been said that the best dads get promoted to grandpas. Grandfathers are good listeners, good storytellers, and most importantly, good friends. They are always there to laugh and play with their grandkids and even console them when necessary. Grandfathers are also often the source of sage advice, a benefit of their many years of experience. One thing is for sure, the love of a grandfather is a unique treasure that is never forgotten by their grandchildren. The times spent with a grandfather turn into precious memories that are conserved in the heart, even long after they have passed.

Because God sent him home.

Pop was a man who would share and joke,
But for him everyone was a bleedin' bloke.
His family made him so happy and proud,
Everyone he met he would tell them aloud.

When Goodbye Is Not Enough

I write this for you, Granddad, as the tears roll down my face,
A part of me just died tonight, a part I can't replace.
They called us to your bedside; it was time for you to fly.
How do you fit a lifetime into a five minute goodbye?
