    I Miss You Grandfather

    Silk dresses, ribbons of lace
    Leopard coat, candy cane petticoat
    He raised me as a princess
    And I grew to become a Queen
    He gave me that first sip of life
    That all ideas starts with a dream
    From the dreams came the plan
    The introduction to the world
    Now he is gone.
    I am sad
    He called me his “Little Girl”

    Christmas is only a few weeks away
    It was our special time
    Cooking sweets, lights all around
    Laughter rung all the time
    So much joy, so much to explore
    The items under the tree
    Everything was given from the heart
    A special treat indeed

    I look back and see his smile
    The tree lights dancing in his eyes
    He’s wearing the scarf that I knitted
    Not caring that I dropped some stitches

    I Miss you Grandfather

    Now embracing another year
    And not wasting what you have given
    To love and chariest the time called “Now”
    And leave my mark willingly

    For you have left a place in my heart
    A strength that came from you
    And the tears that I do shed is because
    I’m missing you

    The tears are washing away the sadness
    Feeling a smile come into my life
    Because it’s now my time to bring the joy
    That will have the children dancing with delight

    The time is coming my dear
    To bake the cakes and pies
    And to light up the little tree
    And have it dance from my eyes

    You were the magic in my life
    The light forever burning.
    I do feel when you are near
    As I go on with the journey

    Replacing the sadness with the joy
    Of all you have
    given me
    Something that could never be brought
    But given willingly

    Love

    Thank you for giving me love.
    Thank you for loving me

    Blowing a Kiss to the Heavens
    Merry Christmas Granddaddy Willie I love you :luvu:


    Always
    Your Little Girl

    Your words gave us a glimpse of just how special life with your grandfather was. A part of him will always remain within you. This was quite touching, Bluewater. Welcome back sis!

    Hi robboy2003 :wave: , 4EVERLUV :wave:, watzinaname :wave:, $$RICH$$ :wave:, nevar :wave:

    Thank you so much for sharing your love on my flow
    It is remarkable how memories can be so healing
    during the saddest moments in one life.
    If we all take the time to count the happy times
    And then count the sad times
    The happy times will out weight the sad ones
    Much love family
    And once again thank you for the love :heart:


    Peace & Love

    heart felt piece as thy pen indeed spoke on thy behalf... the special bond u shared with grandpa can't be express in words... he indeed nutured/molded thee into a beautiful woman... also seems to me when christmas comes around thats when it truly hits home mr. willie is no longer around, yet still i since the love/joy u feel, as the holidays come upon us all... i could go on and on, yet all u want i the reader to do is to enjoy what one has when it comes to thy family/friends/siblings, etc... ( aka... never take being able to interact with them daily for granted, as who knows when the man above shall call out thy name )


    Note: as always continue to uplift this community my poetic sister...


    have a nice night...

    sincerely,
    c.t.adams-///
