Granddad even though I know you’re gone to a better place
I still seem to cry tears almost everyday
Its been almost two years since you’ve been gone
But it feels like your still around
Id rather you be where you are
Then for you to have stayed here and suffered
You told us that you didn’t want anymore kemo
And god looked down and said come on child its time to go
He didn’t allow you to suffer or go through anymore pain
This is some reasons we knew that you were covered in his blood
It was nice that he let you know that you had to go
I will still keep in my prayers
One thing is always true
God loves you
I love you
And ya’ll both love me too
