Without you, I am not sure where I would be,
Grandpa, you are the reason that I became me.
The guidance you have shown me through the years,
Helped me chase my dreams and forget my fears.
You never turned me away or told me good-bye,
With you beside me, I gained the courage to fly.
Now, I can share your story and continue to tell,
My children about the man I knew very well.
Time did not stop, when I learned you were gone,
I will hold my tears back and learn to carry on.
Allow him to forgive my troubles and strife,
Let me find a way, to honor him with my life.
Will I see you again, when my journey is through?
Until then, I will cherish my memories of you.
Grandpa, thanks for allowing to shine so bright,
Watch over me, and sleep with the angels tonight.
By, Imogen Rayne
