Poems for Grandfather, Dad
Daddy Loves YouDo not cry for me when I must go, for heaven waits for me. I got here fine and oh it is grand, there is so much here to see. The Father met me at the gate while you watched me wilt and die. You could not see but all around were angels by your side.
They told me when I go they would care for you. With my body in such pain it was all that I could do. I told you before I left I didn’t want to die, but I hae never been so happy. Don’t see it as good-bye.
I have no more pain and the love here is great. I got a brand new body when I walked through the gate. So do not weep any more for God is holding my hand, and when you close you eyes to sleep and reach the promise land, I will meet you at the gate when the Father guides you through. Until I see you once again, remember “I Love You.”

Memories Are Golden (I Only Wanted You)
They say memories are golden
well maybe this is true.
I never wanted memories, I only wanted you.
A million times I needed you, a million times I cried.
If love alone could have saved
you you never would have died.
In life I loved you dearly, In death I love you still.
Inside my heart you hold a place no one could ever fill.
If tears could build a stairway and heartache make a lane,
I'd walk the path to heaven and bring you back again.
Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again

Dad's Love Remains
Those we love remain with us
For love itself lives on,
And cherished memories never fade
Because a loved one's gone.
Those we love can never be
More than a thought apart,
Far as long as there is memory,
They'll live on in the heart.
A Tribute to DadDad your life was full of loving deeds,
Forever thoughtful of our special needs,
Today and tomorrow, my whole life through,
I will always love and cherish you.
