He was my life
He was my soul
He was my grandfather who had to go
He was ill with no cure
Whose heart gave up and wasn't sure
Why he left me in this world
With no one to talk to
Not even to hold
Now that he's gone
I sit here and cry
Waiting for him to say my last goodbye
I want him to know
I'll be alright
That one day I'll be by his side
Day by day
Year by year
I lived it like he was still here
With a smile on my face
I kiss his picture and put it in place

I just lost my grandpa to cancer in August. It was a very short month battle. Found out July 4. Lost him on August 8. He lost his voice and I couldn't hear his voice through the end. But he always made us laugh and he never complained. Not even in the end. I miss him dearly and when I sleep I always hear his voice. This made my day much easier. Bless you.

My cousin passed away when I was 10. He was like my brother. Him and I were best friends. He got paralyzed when we were about seven years old. We still did our regular things and hung out constantly, but it was not really the same. I still loved him no matter what though. A few years later he got very sick, he was in the hospital for about 4 months after his heart gave out. I miss him so dearly and I wish he was still here with me so that we could still be playing basketball and football together, he was a good guy. Out of anyone he didn't deserve that. But you know what everyone says "the good die young"
