The Greatest Man I Ever Knew

As he walked, he did so with a limp
What I'd do to have one last glimpse
Of the man that was my mother's father
He was rough and strong, there will never be another

That could hold a family so close and dear
He was one that had no fear
He left too quick, so much went unsaid
We were left with broken hearts and feelings of dread

To know that the man we loved so dear
Would never get another chance to hear
Of our love for him we rarely spoke
Had we a clue that morning he awoke

I know we would have all gathered round
And told him all the things that were bound
We would not have let things go unspoken
But here we are now, all still hurt, all still broken
