Author: Mark Spencer


Memories of long ago,
When I was still a lad;
Of times we had together,
And all the fun we had.

You taught me to play baseball.
You showed me right and wrong.
Your eyes welled up with joy
When I wrote for you, a song.

You watched me grow to manhood.
I hope I made you proud.
You gave me the confidence
To rise above the crowd.

But then you went to Heaven.
I know that's nature's law.
I wish I could have told you,
You were the best, Grandpa.

He knows.

As a grandpa myself, I can tell you, he knew. It isn't hard to see it in a child's face, that he loves you.

Nice tribute

Wayfarer's right. Your Grandfather knew how you felt.
Name:                                           Remember Me
