A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

Grandpa

Dear Grandpa,

I don’t want you to worry about me.

This was the plan from the very first day.

God told me to trust him, you see,

To believe and trust his way.

When Mommy told you about me,

I saw that sadness in your eyes,

What to feel or how to be.

Yes, Grandpa, I heard your cries.

I know that this was hard for you,

And I saw you on your knees,

Praying for a miracle to come true.

Your heart was on your sleeve.

I heard you scream to Jesus why,

Blaming him for losing me.

I’ll always be your grandson,

And my grandpa you’ll always be.

I found comfort in your arms

And the love you had for me.

I’m not far from where you are.

In your heart I’ll always be.

Heaven is really a peaceful place.

I’ll meet you again one day.

Keep your faith and always pray.

Know Jesus and trust his way.

I felt you hold my hand that day

And say your I love you’s.

Up here, Grandpa, I can run and play.

Close your eyes, you’ll see me, too.

The day I left this life to be

In heaven with someone new.,

Not only Jesus Christ, you see.

I met your grandpa, too.
