Nothing matters more than those who depend on you, emotionally or physically. Even if the situation is life or death, you have to be there for them, because they need you.


Every day I wake up knowing
You're not there
Every night I go to bed
Wishing you were here
I know you had to go
You didn't have a choice
I know if you could
You would've stayed another day
(Chorus:
I tell my self I should have
Called you more
Talked about everything again
I tell myself I'll do better next time
But there is no next time is there
Grandfather? )
You're the dad I never had
You watched me grow up
You're the one who made me laugh
And loved me the most
I wasn't that bad a kid
Because of you
I did everything for you
(Chorus)
You watched me grow up
You held me when I cried
But I wasn't there
When they watched you die...
I tell myself I should've
Been there for you
On that fatal day
I tell myself I'll do better next time
I'll succeed next time in everything
For you
Grandfather.

I'm glad to hear that you tell your little brother!! That is, believe it or not, one of the best things you could ever do for him :) If you have any questions about your salvation, feel free to ask!

I'm the only one in my family that believes in God...I think I found him when my grandpa died and I had to explain it to my little brother.

I'll see you someday in Heaven, then!

I am glad you believe in Heaven, but that's not the key.  you need to believe in God.  Believe that he loves you, and that he came to earth to die and take your punishment for sin.  and that he rose again three days later and lives in heaven now to one day return and call us to heaven to live with him there.   You need to believe, and ask him to forgive you and take away your sins.  If you decide to do this, then I know I will see you someday in Heaven.  and I hope you do   :)

My family is Chinese, and, well, we believe that there's a Heaven, so yeah, probably. I hope so. I miss him so much...

My grandpa died of lung cancer, and he'd had a stroke, so we expected him to go...but it hurt so much...

:(  I'm so sorry for you!  My Grandpa died this last spring, but he died of old age, so we were all expecting it. 

Do you know if you will see him again, someday, in Heaven?

It is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.

I wish, that I had known mine.  My mother's dad died before I was born, and my dad's father died when I was three.  I only have faint memories of him.  This is a really good tribute to your grandfather.
