Having an answer for every question,
Understanding more than I ever knew,
Glad to help relieve any form of stress,
Happy no matter what there was to do.
Placing fake bets on silly horse races,
And always with a smile.
Trying so hard to make everyone happy,
Regardless of an extra mile.
Intentions always on the good side,
Careful to always say the right thing,
Knowing more than we'll ever know, but
Maybe he's above us with a pair of wings.
Unlimited love to us he gave,
Living life one day at a time,
Having difficulties to overcome
Oh, if life were as easy as rhyme.
Leaving us wasn't his choice at all.
Loving us forever was,
And in our hearts he remains,
Never again to leave us.
Dearest Grandpa, you're always missed and are forever loved.

When I was just turning two... My grandfather who I never got to meet left this world without a notice, Your probably wondering A notice? Yes a notice. He hung himself in my grandmothers garage. He had a choice to leave this world or stay. I guess he chose to be somewhere else. No one knows what he was going through. From what I heard he was an all around loving caring person who would give you the shirt off his back if you were in need of one. I guess that's just all part of life and we can't judge others for their actions. Love them no matter what because one day you're not gonna be able to do that, and there are some who never even had the chance to show their loved ones how much they cherish them for being apart of there life. I'm always gonna ask myself every morning I wake up "Why?" I know I'll never know, but that's just something I have to live with. I know I never met him, but it feels as if he just died yesterday. When he's been gone for 7 years.
