In Memory

in memory



all the little things

superficial to sacred

an exploration of life

Grandpa taught me this

I miss him



I cherish

memories we shared

to celebrate family

he created with purpose

Legacy preserved

I miss him



could I know

the gifts he bestowed

would linger even today

I whisper Happy Birthday

and light a candle

I miss him

  1. This was such a wonderful tribute to your Grandpa! It really hit me because of the special family times we spent at the grandparents with relatives and friends. Funny, how these old memories come back to comfort the soul about the passing of our loved ones!! Thanks for this great piece!


    • Thank you so much. Family is so important. I just got home from a huge dinner at my mom’s with all my sisters and their families. Wouldn’t have it any other way.

      Hope all is well with you!
