Six years ago last month my beloved Grandfather passed away. He was a wonderful man, a true gent who really taught me to appreciate the simply things in life. This is a short poem for him.

My footsteps can no longer
follow the path that you
have led in my life.
My heart can longer leap
in joy at the sound of your
voice as the absence of
your being lengthens.
For as long as you
remain in my heart you
will always be with me.
The memories kept alive
in the fond thoughts of
pleasure of having you in
my life.
Taken away too soon but
at peace I know you are in
a better place but how I miss
the phone calls, visits and the
simple joys we shared.
