Saying Good Bye

Updated on October 23, 2017

Terrie is a mother and her love of writing poetry, music, and quotes have led her back, to explore more of her creative side.

Goodbye, husband, grandpa, and dad.

You gave the world, the best you had.

We love you dearly, our hearts are sad.

You will be missed, by all you touched.

Grandma will be loved so much,

Your worries are not such.

The pain is gone, the fear has passed.

But the love you had, will always last.

Goodbye, husband, grandpa, and dad

Grandpa loved poppies
Grandpa loved poppies

Good Bye

Thank you, Grandpa.

For the rum and coke and every little joke.

We won't forget the time you spent.

Spreading, love and happiness.

One day soon we'll meet again.

When broken hearts, will all mend.

We say goodbye to you for now.

For all you did, please take a bow.

Goodbye Grandpa, husband and dad,

We think of this and are no longer sad.

Goodbye, Grandpa, Goodbye

Grandpa worked for the railway. Trains always remind me of you. Good bye, grandpa.
Grandpa worked for the railway. Trains always remind me of you. Good bye, grandpa.

      Hi poppy, iam so sorry. It's really hard to lose them. I no longer have grandparents on either side of my family. Some days I really miss them. I hope a tribute would help others, even though it's sad and very difficult. Bless you my friend.

      I lost my grandfathers on both sides and my great-grandfather on my mother's side all in the same year (2007). This brought tears to my eyes. Grandpas are so precious.

      Hi Diana, thank you. sometimes poetry is a lot easier for me than trying to talk to someone. It helped me say goodbye

      This is a beautiful tribune to your grandparent. I find poetry to be of great comfort when thinking of a loved one's passing. I have written many memorial poems.
