For My Grandpa

I know we are all feeling a little bit sad

That we’ve lost our Grandpa, our friend, and our dad.

Together we have cried an ocean of tears

As we feel so empty and hold many fears.

But Grandpa would want us to know he’s in a good place

And that he’s watching us all with a smile on his face,

As we have made him so proud, as proud as can be

That he has raised such a beautiful and special family.

Thinking back now, I really must say

I feel lucky and privileged to have known Grandpa to this day.

For in my life, you have played a special part.

The memories I will treasure and keep close to my heart.

For me, I am glad my little baby he got to meet.

And for all of us, be grateful, his life is now complete.

To each one of us he has loved and cared.

As a family, be thankful for the good times we shared.

Although he has gone, we will always be together,

And his spirit will live on in each one of us forever.

When you look to the sky, look for the brightest star,

As that will be Grandpa looking down on us from afar.

And now I would like to thank the good Lord above

For blessing us with our Grandpa, with his kindness and love.

Dear God, if it is not too much fuss,

Take extra special care of our Grandpa, for he is very dear to us.

Grandpa, if you are listening, say a prayer for us every day.

Be sure to protect us and guide us on our way.

We know when God called you, you had to go,

But we want you to know, Grandpa, we miss you and love you so.
