I'm the author of my own life, but unfortunatley all I could find was a pen so I can't erase my mistakes.


Jumping around,
Swimming in fun.
Completley unaware,
Of what was to come.

Received the news,
That ruined my day.
The choice to stay,
Though I had dos to pay.
Leave my friends,
My comfort,
My fun.
To fly five hours,
To dress in black,
And cry.

I chose to stay,
Through the guilt that ate me away.
When I returned from the fun,
From the comfort and friends,
The feelings came back,
With a whole new force.

The last things you said to me, Grandpa,
“I love you very much and you will always be in my heart.”
At the time,
It brought a smile to my face,
But now all the memory brings is sadness,
And tears.

Now I sit,
Empty,
Missing,
And lost.
Oh, so empty.

Here’s to the best grandfather ever.
Rest in peace, Grandaddy.
