A life taken too soon.
A man full of wisdom,
Happiness, and truth.
As you lay on that hospital bed, and my eyes swell with tears
I know you can hear me. The sound of my almost inaudible sobs
Breaking the tangible silence, as we sit together in morbid peace.
The feeling of hands squeezing and tearing my heart out of my chest
At the known fact that there is nothing more we can do to protect you
Grandpa, I know you can hear me, as I speak aloud to myself.
Lying blatantly to my own face, as I say that it will be okay.
As people try to comfort me and tell me this will get better in due time
They say it to help me feel better,
But time is just a figment of our own imagination.
Time does not heal the broken and the deceased
Time does not care about the pain that has been caused.
Nor the tears that have been wept
Grandpa, I know you are happy
Up there in heaven with Jesus
As you use your new replenished body to run the golden roads
Watching the golf balls soar as far as the eye can see
Turning the old into new
And smiling down upon me
Grandpa, I know you are with me through every step of the way
Pushing me to do my best, and never give up on what I’ve put my mind too
Teaching me to never do a lazy man's load
And to treat everybody with respect
Thank you for the life lessons you have taught me
I will forever cherish the memories we have made together
So much love for you, see you soon
Your granddaughter, Naturally
