Gone Too Soon

Throughout my life I've met so few,

who ever were as kind to me,

as was my clever old Παππούς (papoo)

a strong yet gentle man was he.

His eyes they shone so dark and brown,

No wonder then why Grandma fell

For stare too long and you'd found

entirely under his spell.

He'd pick me up in both his arms

and kiss me on my little head.

and when he did I felt no harms

could reach me from under my bed.

But gone too soon is Παππούς now

and all I think as time goes by

every single day is how 

I never got to say goodbye.

My family
