Grandpa's Little Angel
Author: Tricia


Sitting there on your lap.
Laughing, giggling, worshiping every word spoken to me.
You'd kiss my forehead,
and say Grandpa's little Angel.

You promised never to leave me
Then that day came, phone rang and
they told me you were gone.
A silent tear ran down my check,
In hopes of you wiping it away.

Days and weeks pasted yet I still couldnt face reality.
Granpa was gone, whose little Angel would I be now.
Depression took over, sickness came over me.

Then on that one night you came to me, whispered in my ear.
Told me you was fine and that Granpa's little Angel must still go on.

There Grandpa stood, my angel, my light.
Grandpa's Little Angel I will always be.

------- Author's Notes -------

This is a poem, of a true life experience. Many do not believe in life after death. My great grandfather came back to me as an angel.

this is weird!!!!!!

You wrote this about your grandpa passing away and getting the phone call and a single tear falling. Then seeing him one night knowing he was an angel. My dad just passed away a year ago, and I got the phone call from my sister, and a single tear ran down my face. I faced severe depression as well because I didn't know if there was truly life after death, until one night. I woke out of a dead sleep, not even from hearing a noise. Then when I look to my side, I see a face that's so transparent, and it was my dad! What a touching story....

That is weird KitKatrina

That is weird! But I'm glad someone else as had a similar story. Part of my family thinks im completely crazy and doesnt believe me. They said it was a dream, but i was awake for sure sitting up in bed. I could have reached out and touch my great Granddad. Best of luck to you and god bless.

What wonderful words

My grandfather just passed away this past Sunday and waited until I left the hospital and went home then I received the call. Before he passed I told him I believe in angels and that he will always be one. God Bless to you!
