It has been said that the best dads get promoted to grandpas. Grandfathers are good listeners, good storytellers, and most importantly, good friends. They are always there to laugh and play with their grandkids and even console them when necessary. Grandfathers are also often the source of sage advice, a benefit of their many years of experience. One thing is for sure, the love of a grandfather is a unique treasure that is never forgotten by their grandchildren. The times spent with a grandfather turn into precious memories that are conserved in the heart, even long after they have passed.
Here are Poems about the Loss of a Grandfather and Missing Him
Tears streamed down my face when I saw you that way.
I love you grandpa, I will love you every day.
As my tears raced down my face;
I knew you’d soon be in a happier place.
My love will follow you wherever you go.
Oh how I loved you so.
Although I feel sorrow and hate,
You can’t fight fate.
You told me everything as time passed by and by.
I never wanted you to die.
We did a lot together throughout the years.
It’s time to wipe away the tears.
I want you to know
I will never let you go.
I know you loved me too.
My heart will always be with you.
Now it’s time to say goodbye,
Until I see you again someday when I die.
2. An Angel Sent To Heaven
Sometimes I feel all alone
Because God sent him home.
We used to be so close,
But I miss him the most.
I used to ask him for prayer,
But now he’s not even here.
When he stepped on Heaven’s shore,
Oh, how he couldn’t love God more.
He opened the door,
He kissed the floor.
We can talk about God all day,
And the memories we have will never fade away.
I shed a tear every night,
I tell God and my Grandpa goodnight.
Life had its ups and downs,
But you turned life all around.
Cancer ate him alive as he tried to survive.
Someday we all have to die.
Now he’s a beautiful angel up in the sky.
I know you’re in a better place,
But I can’t wait till I can see your face.
I know you’re watching over me and guiding me in everything I do.
The prayers you prayed and the things you did,
I want to say thank you and I love you.
3. Goodbye Granddad
So heaven has received another angel
The night sky another star
Your life has become a loving memory
I know you will never be far.
I know you are watching over me
As my life goes on
I will treasure the memories I have of you
I can’t believe you’re gone.
You were a loving, caring grandad
You were there for me a lot
You will always hold a place in my heart
A loving treasured spot
You were really one in a million
A cut above the rest
All that knew you would agree
You simply were the best.
So grandad I will say goodbye
I love and miss you with all my heart
But as long as I have my loving memories
We will never be too far apart.
We know you can no longer stay with us,
you fought long and hard to be with us.
We know you now watch over and protect us.
Although we cannot hear your voice or see your smiling face,
We know deep down in our hearts that you have not left us.
Instead every day you surround us with the singing of the birds,
the rising of the sun and the falling of night.
So many broken hearts are left behind,
But in our deepest despair our greatest comfort lies knowing
that you are now at peace with the angels and God.
So as times passes our tears will dry,
our hearts will mend,
but our love for you will never end.
5. Grandpa, I Miss You
I know it hurt you;
It hurt me too,
But now that you’re gone
All I know is I miss you.
You were there for so long,
I never thought you would leave.
I though you had another year
Waiting up your sleeve.
The day that you left
Was the saddest of my life.
I remember sitting at home
And crying all day and night.
I might be selfish
But I wish you were here,
Or if you stayed
For one more year.
I know you loved me,
And I still love you too.
So I’m trying to be strong
Just for you.
I know I’m not perfect.
I know I’ll never be.
I just hope you’re up there
And that you’re proud of me.
You had to let go
Even though you were holding on for so long,
But there’s not a day I don’t think of you
And how you were so strong.
I just want to tell you
That you’re always in my heart.
Even though I still cry
I know we’re not apart.
Thinking of you, Grandpa…
6. I Never Got To Tell You Goodbye
I never got to give you a hug
before an angel took your hand and gave you a tug
I never got to give you a kiss
before you made your final wish
I never got to tell you I love you
before you disappeared into the sky so blue
I never got to tell you goodbye
before you got your wings and learned to fly
All these things I wish I did whether by choice or fate
I was too late…
