❤My Poem for my Grandfather (Poppy). A man who will never be forgotten.❤

 

It’s been more than 5 years,

Since we lost you

Today will always be your daywpid-screenshot_2015-09-07-16-12-50_1

I will continue to celebrate

this day in your honor

as it was the day your journey began

I think of all the lives you touched

Gracing them with your loving ways

Because of you

the world made sense

It was a better place

poppys gravewithout you here

nothing has been

or ever will be the same

You gained your wings

To be the angel you always were

I still feel your presence

Especially when times get unbearable

You ease my struggles

By being my loving guardian angel

I cry tears of joy and painpet-tombstones-quotes-09

Joy for the times shared

Pain because I will never stop missing you

Talk to you so often

Still hearing voice so softly

Our bond was strong

and will never be broken

tribute-1It’s been so long without you here

but your memory is held close

I know someday

we will fly together

Soaring about the clouds

But until that day comes

your light will guide me

Believing I will be reunited

With the part of my heart

missing since September 9, 2013Poppy

  1. Thanks for sharing… 🙂

    Do not stand at my grave and weep
    I am not there, I do not sleep
    I am a thousand winds that blow
    I am the diamonds glints in the snow
    I am the sunlight on ripened grain
    I am the gentle autumn rain
    When you awaking in the morning hush
    I am the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight
    I am the soft star that shines at night
    Do not stand by my grave and cry
    I am not there, I did not die
    (Mary Elizabeth Frye)

  2. Alyssa what a beautiful tribute to your grandfather. I Love the poem and all the quotes. I feel the love in your heart when reading the poem and it touched my heart as I shed a few tears. Not of sadness but pride in how amazing you portrayed your grandfather. I know how much you loved him and I hope you know the love he had for you. You were always special to him and he was always so proud of you. I especially love the quote about the stairs to heaven. You will definitely see him again but until then keep the wonderful memories you have close to your heart. Never be sad because he would want you to remember all the good times you both shared. He is and will always be watching over you. All my Love & Support, Mom💜💜

  3. Such a beautiful tribute to your grandfather. We all lose something when someone we love passes on but what they leave behind, in our hearts and memories, is priceless. Such sadness in loss is indication that there was profound love. A warm hug to you, Alyssa.
