Poems for Grandfather, Dad
In Loving Memory of Dad
He never looked for praises
He was never one to boast
He just went on quietly working
For the ones he loved the most.
His dreams were seldom spoken
His wants were very few
And most of the time his worries
Wen unspoken too. He was there...
A firm foundation
Through all our storms in life
A sturdy hand to hold on to
In times of stress and strife.
A true friend we could turn to
When times were good or bad
One of our greatest blessings
The man that we called Dad.
A Special Dad
A Special Dad
A smile for all and a heart of gold.
One of the best this world could hold.
Never selfish, always kind.
A beautiful memory left behind.
Dear Dad in Heaven
Dear Dad in Heaven
I sit here and i ponder how very much
I'd like to talk to you today
There are so many things
That we didn't get to say
I know how much you care for me
And how much I care for you,
And each time that I think of you
I know you'll miss me too.
An angel came and called your name
And took you by the hand and said
Your place was ready in Heaven, far above . . .
And you had to leave behind,
all though you dearly loved
You had so much to live for, you had so much to do . . .
It still seemed impossible, that God was taking you.
And though your life on earth is past,
n Heaven it starts anew
You'll live for all eternity, just as God has promised you.
And though you've walked through Heaven's gate
We are never far apart
For each time that we think of you,
Memories Live Forever
Dear ones come and just go by
Never will they come again howsoever we may try
When they leave they bring so many tears
Because we had a relationship strengthened over years
They make deep impressions on the heart
In a short while they are miles apart
The distance may be due to death or anger
But everything has ended only in a whimper
For sometime we go insane
Mind is full of sorrow and pain
All this doesnt bring end of life
We have to live and constantly strive
Why had they come if they had to go
Just to impart love for a day or so
People die and reltionships end
Life is not just borrow and lend
Deep within there remains a gap
Which gradually heals in time's lap
We pick up the shedded leaves and start again
Sorrow slows and there is joy again
As there are moments to cherish both sweet and sour
Of all those happy moments and hours
For memories never break those ties
Till a person dies..
SadnessSeparation from the one you love
Is hard on everyone It can't be meant as part of life
Until each life is done
The only journey each should take
To spend much time apart
Is when one of the two must die
And break the other's heart.
Dying isn't something to be taken lightly
It means the end of all
That we have worked for on this earth
It means that time was small
But it also means the start of life
If what we're taught is true
So you'll be with the one you loved
And others will be there too.
We're taught that everyone obtains
The goal I just spoke of
Cause a life was lost so that we
Might live in peace and love.
But death and lonliness are still hard
You don't want to be alone
You need the one you love the most
To have near and not a bone
No matter what we are taught
When that one person dies
A fuller heaven doesn't make up
For the broken heart and ties
So make the most of what you have
For someday it must end
The beauty you share in your life span
Will not heartache mend.
