That Dear Man I Loved So Much
That Dear Man I loved So much
As far back as I can remember in my mind's eye I can always see
That dear man I loved so much and he felt the same way about me.
On his face he wore a mustache but it did not look out of place,
That was before most man thought they had to decorate their face.
I guess I had better get back to that special man that I knew,
If I could reveal what he was like I know you would love him ,too.
It seems long ago life in the past and memories rush to my mind.
Like walks we took and jump rope, he was always sweet and kind.
He knew when persimmons were ready and he let me tag along.
Where he went I would , too,and he thought I could do no wrong.
I was his ,"Toots,"he was Grandpa and we spent many a happy day,
Until the year that I was seven and then The Lord called him away.
God saw he was so weary and life had not always been the best.
God in His Tender Love and Mercy took my Grandpa home to rest.
I had other loved ones but none to fill the void that was left that day.
For none one could ever replace the Love that God had sent our way.
At times I will think of him and wonder what he would think of me now.
Would he know me?I was a child then, if he did only God could say how..
Will that same love still burn in our heart and draw us so close again
In the land with loved ones?Always a place of Love , void of all pain!
It's funny when I think about it ,I only knew him
for 7 years but they were good years and they
have been with me all of my life. I wish I could
have had a few more years with him I am sure
there would have been a lot of changes in my
life but I am thankful that I do have good
memories of him that will never fade away.
I have been wanting to write about him for a
long time and finally decided I had better get
it done now ,Hope I did not bore you too much.
