This was wrote for a friend when her grandfather passed away


Grandad we didn’t see you much,
doesn’t mean that we don’t care.
We all have our own family now,
and little time to spare.

The memories will stay with us,
of times spent in the past.
How you would sit us on your knee,
and often make us laugh.

Grandad you were a special man,
i’m glad that you were mine.
The memories that you gave to me
will stand the test of time.

Now your with our nanna,
up in the sky above.
Once again together,
to you both we send our love.

Today we say goodbye,
and will probably shed a tear.
Know you and nanna are in our hearts,
we will always keep you near.

When a loved one passes over,
there is always such sorrow.
Just know time does really heal
and look forward to tomorrow.

    Such a sweet poem. Never easy when a loved one passes away, but time does indeed heal.

    Lovely poem and agree with Cubby.
    Funny really, i have recently written a poem about my grandad being diagnosed with cancer…I am off to the theatre with him on saturday to take his mind of things.

      I am so sad to hear that sending you and your family love and positive thoughts. Reflections is about my mum she had Alzheimer’s for 10 years before she died. I do hope everything goes well for you at the hospital

        Sorry to hear about your mum

        It was 2004 when she died. It’s just sad to watch anyone you love suffer. I just think people need to know they are still inside their body although sometimes you might not recognise them
