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.

Poem Wishing Grandpa Stayed One More Year
  • By Amanda Dwyer
Grandpa, I Miss You

I know it hurt you;
It hurt me too,
But now that you're gone
All I know is I miss you.

You were there for so long,
I never thought you would leave.
I though you had another year
Waiting up your sleeve.

The day that you left
Was the saddest of my life.
I remember sitting at home
And crying all day and night.

I might be selfish
But I wish you were here,
Or if you stayed
For one more year.

I know you loved me,
And I still love you too.
So I'm trying to be strong
Just for you.

I know I'm not perfect.
I know I'll never be.
I just hope you're up there
And that you're proud of me.

You had to let go
Even though you were holding on for so long,
But there's not a day I don't think of you
And how you were so strong.

I just want to tell you
That you're always in my heart.
Even though I still cry
I know we're not apart.

Thinking of you, Grandpa...

Grandpa has left on 2016/10/15 while I was away overseas for study. It was the worst day of my life. I felt that my world has fallen apart, shredded into pieces. It's so hard to pick myself up.
