Grandfather Death Poem

Sweet Poem Remembering Grandpa

My grandfather recently died, and it just broke my heart. My family was military, so my visits with him weren't always very common; however, that never changed the way I felt about him. He was what made up my best childhood memories, and for that I am forever grateful!

My Grampie

Published: September 2014

My love for my Grampie will always be alive.
Although he is gone, his legacy will survive.

In the things he taught me and love he would show,
I am forever grateful, and it's to him I owe.

From the rain, to the dust, to the stars, and the sand,
You will be among me daily, holding my hand.

Your smile will always be etched in my mind.
Another Grampie like you would be impossible to find.

I know your trip of life was fulfilled and long,
For that makes this easier and helps keep me strong.

Your life was a blessing to all you knew,
But I know you're up there now, making your big debut.

Greeting Grammy with big hug and a kiss,
I know she's been waiting, but it's something I'll miss.

You know that I love you and you left too soon,
But to me, you'll always be the guy who hung the moon.

Never having had a grandfather in my life (they both left the world too soon), this poem really touches my heart. Every word expresses the love between you and your Grampie. A wonderful tribute poem and that last line is awesome.

It is Christmas Eve today, and in a few days it will be 3 weeks without my grandfather. I did not get to say goodbye to him because he died in his sleep. I am only 13 and miss him so badly. No matter how much time you have with them, it will never be enough.

My grandpa passed away tonight and it tore me apart. Out of all my family, my grandpa was the closest one to me. He taught me everything I know today. Eighteen years was sure not enough time with him. He was 86 and lived such an amazing life. I thank God every day that that amazing man was able to become my grandpa. I was his angel and now he is mine.

I lost my Grandad a few weeks ago, and I've really been struggling because I didn't get to see him enough or get to say goodbye :( The funeral is in a week. Thank you for your story and your poem. You're right, 18 years isn't enough time.
