That horrible monster with the name I can’t pronounce
That ate him
Swallowed him whole

That horrible monster that took it’s time
No rush, no hurry
Slow and steady got the job done

That horrible monster that loves to bring pain
Pain, that not only him, but everyone else felt
But didn’t show it

That horrible monster that left a hole in people’s hearts
A void which can’t be filled
That never goes away

That horrible monster that took him
It didn’t leave a note, an apology letter
Just enough of an enigma to keep you wondering, but angry

That horrible monster that just keeps fighting
It never gets along with anyone
And it never will give up.

This is about my grandpa. He had ALS. I never met him, but I think about him a lot. I hope this pulls at your heart strings as much as it does mine.
