A Tribute to My Grandfather
We share this world under an emerald sky and on this night it tells the stars to shine.
For each of those diamonds in the dark, we made a wish, and into the blackness,
a prayer for everything we leave behind, and with the moon as our witness,
we cast what's left into the sea.
Our eyes meet a million sparkles of silence with each reflecting memory,
because within us all, we have such fond memories, and each and every moment is
set in stone, allowing us to always remember the loving man we have known.
And now on this day, we say good-bye to a peaceful man who raised us all,
a man whose love was so big in a world that could be so small.
He has been there for each of us, but now. the time comes for us to part
but to each and every passing day, we hold him in our heart.
And now the world is a different place, lost smiles and time.
With love we lose a cherished face, lost but never gone.
For he watches over us, as he has always done, and for the challenges that lie ahead
he will help carry us through each one.
He will forever remain a husband, a friend and a father, too.
And we will say this with all the love in the world, "Thanks. for always being you."
