    you held me when i cried
    when i thought i would die
    you kissed me so gently
    on the cheek and then winked
    i'm so blessed that i knew you
    you were more than life to me too
    its so different cuz your gone
    but i know i'm not alone

    when i needed a little help
    i ran to you for loving help
    your compassion calmed my fears
    your wise beyond your years
    everything you said to me
    was quoted biblically
    and i cherish you spirit
    your the life in my spirit

    when i heard that you were gone
    i felt to hurt and alone
    how could you just leave me
    when you cared since i was three
    you get me goin' strong
    and placed me where i belonged
    i owe my life to you
    for you are the epitome of truth

    after a tearful funeral
    we rejoiced unusual
    because we know where you are
    your in heaven as my star
    you guide me through the night
    and keep me so inspired
    i love just what you do
    your love for me is true

    i'm in the grave yard so sad
    as your pale body is lagged
    down deep beneath the earth
    i feel so deeply hurt
    at the same time i'm happy
    because your in heaven gladly
    your just where you belong
    you've got me singing this song
    suddenly i feel a strong wind
    as the minister prays content
    and as he finishes and sighs
    i feel the wind subside
    it feels just like a hug
    from you so far above

    grandpa...
    you held me when i cried
    and my tears fall into your demise....

    i love you grandpa
