You can close your eyes and pray that he will come back. Or you can open your eyes and see all that he has left. Or you can be full of the love that you shared, You can turn your back on tomorrow and live for yesterday, Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday. You can remember him and only that he is gone. Or you can cherish his memory and let it live on, You can cry, close your mind, be empty, and turn your back. Or you can do what he would have wanted, smile, open your eyes, love and move on.
This is a beautiful tribute poem for a special grandad who will be sorely missed. Grandad, We know you can no longer stay with us, you fought long and hard to be with us. We know you now watch over and protect us. Although we cannot hear your voice or see your smiling face, We know deep down in our hearts that you have not left us. This poem was written by Dennis Taylor from the perspective of a young boy whose grandad has died. And now that you're not here, Granddad I'll give double hugs to Nan. The words also remind us how truly blessed we were to have had such a special person in our life.
As I look up to the skies above, The stars stretch endlessly— But somehow all those rays of light Seem dimmer now to me.
As I listen to the morning birds Sing softly from afar — It seems to be a mournful tune That echoes in my heart. Another day has come again, As time moves surely on — But nothing now seems quite the same, To know that he is gone. The days and weeks and months ahead Will never be the same — Because a treasure beyond words Can never be replaced. The loss cannot be measured now, The void cannot be filled — And though someday the grief may fade, His mark will live on still.
Our Grandfather kept a garden, A garden of the heart; He planted all the good things, That gave our lives their start.
He turned us to the sunshine, And encouraged us to dream: Fostering and nurturing the seeds of self-esteem. And then the winds and rain came, He protected us enough; But not too much because he knew We would stand up strong and tough. His constant good example, Always taught us right from wrong; Markers for our pathway that will last a lifetime long. Thank you Grandfather, we love you. The words remind us to be grateful for the happy times we shared and to trust that grandad will always be close to us in spirit. When I am gone, release me, let me go.
I gave you my love, and you can only guess How much you've given me in happiness. I thank you for the love that you have shown, But now it is time I travelled on alone. So grieve for me a while, if grieve you must, Then let your grief be comforted by trust.
It is only for a while that we must part, So treasure the memories within your heart. And if you need me, call and I will come.
