Favorite Quote:
Always desire to learn something useful.

He has been gone for two years now.
A clock that has ticked solemnly by.
I can’t believe he has been gone this long.
My heart still aches every time I picture his face.
He is the best;
But then again I presume that is past tense now.
The longing;
Stretching me- I’m trying to reach for those last few memories we had.
But he is gone forever now, and I know he won’t come back.
He passed onto a new life; a new place.
I hope he is happy there.
But now he is just a breeze in the summer.
A grain of sand on the beach.
An ash in the wind.
He is lost; he is gone.
He is remembered.
Always in my heart.

What an amazing poem. It is not only heartwrenchingly beautiful but it is evocative- I can picture in your mind exactly how you feel about your grandfather. You were both so lucky to have each other.  Keep writing!

A beautiful poem from an amazing youg woman about a wonderful man.  His faith gave him certainty in facing the uncertain.  We all have a piece of that in us because of him.
