He's gone

I remember him

Sitting in the rocking chair

Weak, voiceless,

But that's not how I picture him

To me he will always be

The big tall man

With the big loud voice

And the big loud laugh

I hope he knows I love him

Up there in heaven

I know we didn't talk much

What was there to say?

But I will always remember him

And love him

Because he was granddad

And I hope he knows
