My Great Grandfather

He was small but so strong underneath
His heart was as big as the world
I remember him taking me on walks when I was younger
Seeing him at Christmas his favorite time of year
So he could see all of his wonderful family
I remember looking at him with a big smile on his face
He was a thankful guy for all his blessings
I remember his last birthday
We surprised him with the whole family
We have pictures of him
And in those pictures he was crying tears of joy
Then he began to get older and weaker
We knew this was going to be his last Christmas
So we made it the best
Then it fell upon us
The hospital
We visited him everyday
Then one day he passed
It was sad for us all
Earth had lost a wonderful man
But Heaven had gained a strong angel
