To my grandfather, who resides in the place you go after death, i will always miss him and everyday is another day where i realized i couldve done something nicer for him if i hadn't been so selfish when he was alive.

I know that you are gone now,

but I wish I'd only shown,

how much that I needed you

I wish you could've known,

that i appreciated you

and everything that you did

I listened to your stories

and everything you said

you listened to my fears,

and i knew you always cared

but now there is no one here

to help me when i'm scared

I feel i dissapointed you

and i know i let you down

and it makes me sad, that now i know

that you'll never come around

A Broken Heart

I like it. Some of my life for it might be because I can identify with it. My Grandfather on my Father's side of the family died September 19th 2006. I've never gotten along with that side of the family. My parents divorced when I was 2 years old. I've always lived with my Mother. Unfortunately I don't even really consider my Father and his family my family. My Grandfather was a good person, just not one that I could spend much time with. Last thing he told me was "Always do the right thing, no matter what happens." He died about 8 days later.

Wow, thats sad, I didnt consider my father my real dad either so i know how that feels. I used to spend every single weekend with my grandfather before that. And he died hen i was in my selfish phase, not a good way to end it.

this is really good... and i think everyone can identify with it one way or another...

my grandmother died of colon cancer at the beginning of the year, and she has lived with us since i was six when my grandfather died. She practically raised me, so it was like losing a parent when it happened. Not a day goes by that i dont think of her, and of course, just like in your poem, i think of all the ways i could have treated her better...

yeah, my grandfather died on May 10 of 2007 and it was an unexpected heart attack, it was a day before i was gonna get to see him because i ended up not seeing him a week before to hang out with my friend so ive always beaten myself up about it.

oh this is exactly like what I wrote for my grandfather's funeral, i think all grandpas are sorta the same old and wise and caring. I loved it, it really makes you think and get the feeling of nostalgia.

aw, it breaks my hear that you feel like this. he wouldn't want you to feel as if you've disappointed him. he loved you, so he'd want you to be happy and not carry some guilt around in your heart.

So sad. Feeling like a dissapointment is one of the worst. The poem is so real. What little heart I have goes out to the girl in this poem.
