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

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

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.
