My grandaddy passed away a couple of years ago. Shortly before then I had written a poem for him. These are a couple of the stanzas:"Grandaddy, I never told you this-but it`s important to me now,to let you know how you change my lifein ways you know not how.Memories of my infancydo not belong to me;Though I smile when they come from you,so clear and sarcastically.I love you more than you`ll ever know;and it just dawned on me why:Because you are the touchstone to my past,and my future`s alibi!..." Hold your good memories. :-)
thank you Debbie it's a beautiful poem, "because you are the touchstone to my past, and my future's alibi"..I love that line. I want to keep his legacy alive, because I want Beli to always know what a wonderful and loving man her Great-grandfather was.
=( My heart goes out to you.
