We know your love lasts through the year,
But sometimes, you’re not near.
To witness what we do and say,
In the games we play each day.

So here’s a book, a picture tale,
Sit and see how we prevail.

Captured moments, crystal clear.

Know this truth in what we say,
Love for you grows every day.

Across the miles, our hearts display,
We miss you more with each passing day.

Opened my eyes to gone, now and forever,
Aches slicing through my heart,
We’re apart, never to restart.

Without you, strength I aim,
Your chair’s empty and cold,
Come home, I need you to hold.

With your great-grandkids, a source of pride.
To sit on your knee, annoy just like me,
In your calm embrace, how happy we’d be.

Grandpa’s voice, a soothing light.
Despite the differences, day or night,
Love connects us, pure and bright.

Walking the beach, toes in the sand,
Into the Cornish sea you’d wade,
Wetsuit, body board, a wave-riding grand.

The way we’ll remember,
Spring walks, hands held tight,
Higher on swings, willow trees in sight,
Laughter echoing, pooh sticks taking flight.

The way we’ll reminisce,
Creative tales at bedtime’s brink,
Elephants, crocs, bears in ice cream’s link,
Your voice painted tales, minds aflutter.

The way we’ll hold dear,
Life’s spirit, sparkling eyes,
Navy jumper, corduroy jeans, a stylish guise,
Tinted glasses, ties, and hats, a vibrant prize.

Life’s wisdom in his care,
Guiding us with love so rare.

Warmth and kindness, his legacy,
Earning love and respect, eternally.
Never seeking praise or fee,
Yet receiving what was meant to be.

In humble ways, he led the way,
A role model in every display.
Reflecting now, I clearly see,
The person I aspire to be.

Fun times, shared laughs, oh, how time does fly.
Hard to bear, the weight of grief,
Yet, in our hearts, Grandpa finds relief.

Forever in our hearts, his place,

In the love we hold, forever to give.
