• A week almost gone
    yet I think about it still.
    Daily it passes through my mind.
    Like the sound of a sad song.

    A hero you were to me
    Strong yet loving.
    The memory will never fade
    Your presence I will always see.

    A Veteran of the war so proud
    you never backed down from a fight.
    Such a gentle Grandfather
    with a laugh so loud.

    Daily, Images of You Pass Through My Mind...

    Sitting on the porch
    watching the sky as
    the Sun goes down.

    Seeing you that day hit me so hard.
    I did not know what to say.

    I cried for you then,
    and I cry for now.
    Though I know you are in a better place.
