Grandfather’s Secret (limerick)

Updated on November 17, 2012

Picture of grandfather in military

My grandfather’s old I must say

One hundred and one years today

For wife’s care you see

How this came to be

Was fifty when he passed away

      Fun and light hearted limerick but also rings true - it's hard to let go.
