My Granddaddy, My Best Friend


Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006 with permission of the Author.

The one that is my friend,
The one that is my guide.
How much I love and how much I care,
Is too much to describe.

You've always been my hero.
You've always been my pride.
You've always given so much love
And shown what's deep inside.

My heart is full of love,
And my soul is all delight.
You're the one who sang me to sleep
and whispered nighty night.

And every day I pray to God;
I thank him for sending you
Because you're the one who wrote me the song
And made all my dreams come true!

My father and grandpa broke up three years back. Before that I have lived five years with my grandpa, and the day we broke up, from that day I miss him a lot. I love you grandpa and I miss you too!

My grandfather is my best friend, and he even says that I am his favourite so I love him. He supports me in every problem that is too difficult for me to solve. I know that my grandfather is special and I know that he will always be there for me no matter what. This poem shows the love between a granddaughter/son and a grandpa. So I really love this poem and for a present for my grandpa's birthday, I made him a bookmark with this poem on it! thx a lot to Lauren. This poem is simply wonderful and it really touched my heart.

Today was the day my grandfather passed away but when I read this poem I feel like he is with me and I can feel his hugs. I miss him very much but I know that he is still with me to the very end. I lived with him for 14 years and now he has gone. I am now 17 and all I have left are my pictures and memories of him.

I love this poem, my grandfather has been there for me no matter what and still is there for me. He has never stopped loving me. I am 15 years old and the only one of his grandchildren to still sit on his lap. I love my grandfather very much and he is my best friend, and the best friend that is always true to me and he is always the one that I can run to about anything. My grandfather was there when my real dad wasn't and he is still here and my real dad isn't. I wish every girl could have a grandfather like mine.

I needed a poem to read for my grandfather's 70th birthday. This was the one because it touched my heart. After I was done, everyone was in tears including my granddad. So, thank you Lauren

I have lived with my grandparents for almost 8 years and watched my grandpa suffer a lot. I never thought this would happen but as he lay in the hospital yet again I know he was my best friend. This poem touches me in so many ways I just wish I knew for sure if he would live to watch me grow up. Good luck in the future. :'(

My Grandpa died a year ago and I had to look for a poem to read at his funeral. This was the one.
It touched so many people that day and I thank the person that wrote it.
