Watching Over Me

Post by Duchess » Thu Oct 16, 2008 7:43 pm

~A Tribute to My Grandfather~

You were gone so fast that I didn’t even have time to react
You left an empty hole in my life
I really wish that you would come back

Your body gave out but I know your soul lives on
Your memory gives me comfort and sometimes I can feel you right beside me
You give me courage, you make me strong

I know if you were here
You’d tell me what to do and guide me through
You’d dry my every tear

Now when I look at the sky, I pick out the brightest star
Shining like a beacon, guiding me
And I know your really not that far
"Our minds create our realities based on our perceptions and how we view our world..." "In crazy mans world, everyone else is insane and he is the only sane one"

I wish to live in a world where chickens can cross the road without their motives being questioned.

Reminds me of both of my grandparents. Well written, Duchess. :bow:

Words powerful emotions of the strong bond with your Grandfather, the feelings of lost... Star shine brightly through all your nights...
The wheels of time
how ever slow
speeds up
as we grow

So much be said
with so few words
