Written by Gail DeBole
In memory of my grandfather
Nice Day For a Funeral
(You were always old. I can't remember a
time when you were not.)
(And you had no past before the first time I
became aware of your presence.)
(The weather huddled the mourners together.
It was a cold day, but the sun was out to pay its respects, also.)
(I huddled with the rest. Echos of
the service left a sad taste in my soul.)
(The Rabbi had spoken of you like an old friend.)
(And convinced me of your close
lifelong brotherhood with him.)

death, grandfather, grandson, love, sick,
He loved his grandpa with all his heart
All the hugs in the world
Could not heal him
How we dreaded the time when
Memories would be all that’s left

absence, farewell, grandfather, grief, memory, thank you,
The leaves have turned brown and crisp
And I've remembered
How much you've been missed
On a day like today
It's the days when I feel down
And I'm sad
That you're not around
Desperately in need of a grandpa's embrace
You were like my best friend
And I'm yearning
For the hours we'd laugh on end.
Now I'm doing quite the opposite
The memories harvest in my mind
As I bow to your grave
With flowers of all kinds
Commemorating the part you played
In shaping the person I am today.
A granddaughter that misses you dearly.
death, forgiveness, grandfather, life, love,
Pictures and moments stick
Past life sticks
The boy knows but cant see the light of
the unknown picture of you grandpa.

Let another sun set,
Let another flower wilt,
Let another autumn cast its gloom,
Let another tear role,
As ye part, and bid
The final adieu.

Here lies the best Grandfather,
One who was very considerate.
Remembering him as a child,
I would sit on his lap.
He was a rare person indeed.
He was a colonel in the Army.
Also superlative of a gentelman.
Here lies the best grandfather,
May he rest in peace.
Yesterday my Grandfather died
Today I found a quarter from 65'

Grandparents old of grandparents new,
the unique joy that you are bringing proper.
Fairy tale's told in the rosy past,
my first granddaughters are here at last.
Fishing trips and ice cream cones,
lullaby songs until we doze.
Stories told upon cozy laps,
sunny walks on shaded paths.
Butterfly kisses and big bear hugs,
truly grandparents is another word for love.

death, emotions, funeral, grandfather, grave, how i feel, loss,
I didn't like losing you
And my tears cried the truth
With rain that came
On the cloudiest day
Like heaven was crying too

Strange or not
Odd and fun.
That’s not all
And still are
Strange and odd.
life is life.
Not is lies.
Truth seeps from
Lies, lies, lies
Move, move, move
Lies are life.
Lies are death.
Lies are homes.
Lies are pain.
Lies are truth.
Truth is life.
Truth is death.
Truth is home.
Truth is pain.
Truth is lie.
Truth is that.
Lies will die.
Lies will cease.
Truth will live.
Truth will be.
absence, death, emotions, eulogy, grandfather, grief, miss you,
Dear grandfather, you meant the world to me.
I loved you even as a baby.
You played with me and gave me love,
Not something that every grandfather does.
You didn't leave us that long ago.
It was only in 2013.
I remember that day like it was only yesterday.
Sunny and warm, it was only eight in the morning.
You had asked for a napkin and we supplied,
But when we had gotten there you had already died.
I loved you paw paw, I really did, and I hope
Wherever you are you still love me.
I miss you, and wherever you are I know you miss
I love you, paw paw.
Rest in Peace
death, grandfather, love, memory, missing you, sad love, song,
Standing there alone at the graveyard
Calling yearning memories of the past
Can't stop his tears , that's truly hard
She has gone , What a dote didn't last!
Shrouded by thoughts , downcast eye
Her voice is still beating in his ear
She was singing like a bird under the clear sky
When he played harp and waterfall was near
Can't forget these hoary promises to be together
On good and bad , To make love their guide
He just wanna say he will be loyal forever
Until his soul meets her on the other side

daughter, father, grandfather, grandmother, grief, life, lost, mother, pain, people, sister, son, wife, women,
Like us than
You will ever know.
Not of stone
But of fear.
absence, grandfather, grief,
I remember all the fun that we had,
I remember all the times we cried,
I remember all our talks,
I remember the sound of your voice,
The way that you made me feel,
I remember the way you could make me smile.
I remember you,
No day goes by that I don’t remember you.
I still feel you presence,
But all that I have left from you,
Is what I can remember.
Constance La France
Sad girl, can you hear the wind in the trees whistling,
That is your grandpa with his tune like a bird visiting;
Always recall him with Ella, crystal blue eyes shining,
Not a day will go by that he is not up above listening;
And his favorite cardigan sweater- he is still wearing.

age, death, grandfather, life,
Thumbnails of memories we rewind.
Reel of real life has come to halt.
The old age is the time for
Shaking hands, blurring eyes
To share one's know-hows
And prepare for
death, dedication, grandfather, grandson, grief, mom, son,
Mom hated Wednesdays but I don't remember why.
Sadly, it was on a Wednesday when she died.
My Granddad also died on a Wednesday and that was very sad.
My Grandmother bragged because she was going to receive $10,000 because of his death and that made me mad.
Me, Mom and Granddad were all Leos, we were born in August and July.
It hurt me when Granddad passed away and when my poor mom died.
It's been painful since Mom passed away.
It's a fact that she hated Wednesdays.
(Dedicated to Agnes and Burley Johnson who passed away on March 6, 2013 and August 3, 1994.)
death of a friend, grandfather, heartbreak,
I awake, startled by the light of the lights
Dave, standing there beside me
“Wake up; He’s serious;
Close the door behind us”
You can’t leave me here, clueless!
One look at mama and I knew he’s gone.
Or on his way
“We shall let u know”
And they, through the door
Gathering all sorts of roses,
Prayers, pleas, tears!
death, feelings, grandfather, hero, loss, love,
He was there
When no one else was,
And he held me when I cried.
He acted as the Robin Hood
That watched over my life.
He laughed with me when I was happy,
And made me laugh when I was sad.
He was the best thing that I ever had.
My grandfather, Mr.Robin Hood shall I say,
Was something very rare,
And now he's way up there,
Acting as the Robin Hood
Of my life.
anti bullying, bullying, death, evil, grandfather,
You left me amid a pack of wolves,
snarling, baring their teeth...
closing in on me.
I know they'll tear me apart.
As the night grows darker, colder,
I hear their menacing howls,
and I realize I'm all alone.
I know tonight's my last night.
I search all around for you,
call to you for help,
all the while knowing you won't come.
I know you can't.
But, I fight back
I fight the wolves with all I've got,
and I emerged the winner.
Now, I know I'll live another night.
christmas, death, grandfather, life, love, miss you, poetry,
The perfect gift
Is often a myth
It's clearly out of reach
You're already gone
Never to respawn
But listen to me preach
The best gift of all
Is hearing your call
And having you back with me
It's been too long
I wrote us a song
I wish you were here to see
Christmas is about love
The innocence of a dove
But also family
Grandpa that's you
We all know it's true
I fall right under your tree
You are my gift
That one wish
I'll glance up at the moon
I'll blow you a kiss
It'll never miss
Grandpa I'll see you soon
angel, anger, friend, funny, grandfather, grief,
Here lies my old pal Michael,
His spirit set free by wind,
because the storm which kicked his bucket,
trapped the poor old git within,
A Scotsman by his name,
and a carpenter by trade,
should of built yourself s door mate,
to stop the barn which caved you in.
I love you Bic.
beach, death, grandfather, world war ii,
My Grandad wore his leather belt with pride
Lions head buckle he polished till it shone
Always said I could have it when he died
His death came and then I felt so alone .
During the d.day landings on sword beach
Fellow soldier hit in German air raid
A place of safety he just could not reach
But grandad saw him and went to his aid.
After the war he sent Grandad a box
Inside was a belt and note which read
A lions courage and strength of an ox
If you hadn't helped me I'd have been dead.
I look at his belt and courage I see
Feeling honoured that he left it to me.

This Goes out to My Pop,
i've gotta stop,
you wouldn't wanna see me cry,
you would wanna see me fly,
i've let you down ,
Please don't frown.
I LOVE YOU POP!!
I've gotta Stop,
Turn my Life Around,
Only then will you be Proud,
I MISS YOU POP
But i've Gotta Stop,
All the hurt i hold inside ,
Of all the times i've cried,
Knowing you wanna see me smile,
Makes me wanna Give it a Trial,
You Will always Be A part of me,
What people Don't See,
Is What you mean to me,
Now your free
I begin to realise,
You were My Life's Favourite Surprise.....
care, death, deep, depression, grandfather, grief, suicide,
Could I have done something
Was I not listening
You showed me the ropes
Made me the man I am
Would things be different
If I didn't leave for home
Could you have stayed alive for me
Now I'm missing a piece of my soul
Didn't you know what this does
Leaving me broken
Were we not enough
No I can't trust an old heart
I needed you to know
You were worth more
Then death tempted your beautiful soul
Its a sad thing to loose one of your own
I needed you to know
I would've given you my young
And taken your sick and old
