For Granddad

My Granddad passed away just before Christmas, this is for him.


Time whispers
Fleeting, it escapes us
You were a part of our world
A smile cemented
in childhood memories
You were a card playing companion
Intrigued by technology
And the new world it opened
I remember your CD player
You were proud as punch
As it was mounted on the wall
And opened with a wave
I remember Christmas hats
And party poppers
Putting the streamers on your head
I remember Auld Langs Syne 
And you being an actor 
In my college safety video
I remember sleep overs
And a warm fire
Surrounded by the love of grandparents
I remember you lit up
When you first held my daughter
And that you found
Jakes antics funny
I remember all this 
With a smile
Because I will never forget
Our time together
The memories we shared
