Missing My Grandpa

Published: April 2008

I was who you called your little squirrel,
And who you also called your little girl.
Near the peach tree where you had laid,
I wanted you to have stayed another day.
But I felt a peace when the wind would blow,
Only to hear you say I must go.
Now that you are deceased,
We pray you are at peace.
Because when Grandma died,
You knew that you had tried.
And in your heart you were so blue,
But we knew Grandma loved you.
I wish I could again see you,
Because our hearts are also so blue.
Your life on Earth I know became boring,
But now you can rest while we are mourning.
And now you and Grandma can be together,
Because we now know you are much better.
Why did you have to die?
But for now we must say goodbye.
