Grandpa

Location

I saw you today

In the soul of a man

Guiding his wife

Like you

When you cared for grandma

When she was diagnosed with Alzheimer

 

You were her rock

You were my foundation

Foundation for music

I feel you in every piano note

In every melody

That runs through my ears

 

You are not of blood

You are of love

Stronger than ties of true relation

It stays with me

It runs through me

You are part of me

 

I missed you today

The day when I saw you

The day when I felt you

In another man

Just like you

Full of warmth and kindness

 

It brought tears

It brought memories

It brought you back to me

For that small moment

There it will sit

Forever in my mind and my heart
