Hello all again a little while back in my english class wee had to wright poems about lose. A long time ago i lost my grandpa do to a heart attack. So i choice to wirte about him.

When we handed them in, then when we got them back the teacher asked me to stay after class becuase she had to talk to me. The suspense was killing me but the reason she wanted me too stay was because she wanted me to enter the poem into a contest so i did. But i will not know till June if i have won or not. This poem is copyrighted by me so if you want to use it some where else please ask first.



I Love You Grandpa


I Love You Grandpa…

We ran we played, you fell back.

I Love You Grandpa…

You gave me candy from the closet.

I Love You Grandpa…

You took me to town
You bought me Toys.

I Love You Grandpa…

That day you went to the shop
I remember you walking…
You opened the door, started working,
Clutched your Heart
like a fire grasping timber.

You asked to lie down
Dad took you to bed
You went for a nap.

I Love You Grandpa…

When you woke I was at the foot of the bed…
I watched you clench your heart once again…
I saw the Pain. I saw the Tears. I saw your eyes Close.

I Love You Grandpa…

Grandma came, the ambulance
carried you to the hospital.

I Love You Grandpa…

When we came into the hospital
You lay in bed.

I Love You Grandpa…

You called me to your side
Took my hand, told me to be Brave
Told me to be Strong
But best of all you told me to be Me.

I Love You Grandpa…

We watched your eyes close
still Hand in Hand
Mom pulled back.

I Love You Grandpa…

The line went Blank
nurses rushed in
they came and went.

I Love You Grandpa…

All was done
No more to do they said
I looked into those closed eyes
saw it was Time.

I Love You Grandpa…

Maybe one Day we’ll be together
Once Again…

I Love You Grandpa. I Love You Grandpa.

I Love You Grandpa… and Always will.

Very nice indeed, heart warming, touching, beautiful.......all would be an understatement. Simply precious.
War produces veterans, wounded both physically and mentally. They have sacrificed for us.....and it is now our job to help these veterans, as they have already helped us in ways we will never know, in ways that we cannot fathom, and in ways that we take granted every day.

What a lovely, lovely tribute to your Grandpa! And to be able to create emotions in others by use of words - that is a gift!

Wishing you every success...

Never let your computer realize you are in a hurry or just typing the last few words of a vital document.

While outer events might make one happy or sad, happiness itself is entirely internal, and at all times completely within one's power.

Lovely word and thought. I think grandpa smiled.
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

Excellent poem!

Reminded me of my grandfather, and greatgrandfather's moments.

It's tough being in the same room when someone you love dies, let alone holding there hand.

I was in the room when my great-grandfather died. It's hard being there with a loved one seeing them alive one last time. Hearing there last words, and last breath.

It's very difficult.

When my grandfather passed away it was 2 hours after we left my grandma's house (he was there). (about 11pm) we came home and went to bed, and then about 1 we got a phone call from my grandma. :thumbsup:

My grandfather passed away at 1:11am on November 11, 2004. I always thought it was weird how most of the date and time was all 1's.


GREAT POEM! :flowers:
