Granddad was gentle, and Granddad was kind,
someone you could talk too, say what’s on your mind.
Patient and mellow, and honest and true,
a man for all seasons, for me and for you.
Granddad understood, and Granddad knew best,
to know him and love him, I really was blessed.
With patience and time, he gave his advice,
and he didn’t condemn, or say there’s a price.
Granddad I’ll miss you, I’m feeling bereft,
if only I’d made more, of time you had left.
I’ll live as you taught, and I’ll honour your name,
I’ll live my life for you, till we meet again.
So I’ll take on your patience, I’ll be honest and true,
as a living memorial, Granddad I love you.


The Love we have for Grandpa will never fade away,
We’ll think of him our special friend through each passing day.
When we walk into the room and see his empty chair,
Although we know he is resting we still feel his presence there.
The memories of his laughter, his warm and loving smile,
His eyes so full happiness, his heart that of a child.
Memories are forever be they laughter or of tears,
Memories we will treasure through all our passing years.
