So I wrote this for a man in my church who I always looked up to as a Grandfather and he passed away when I was about 11...I wrote this right after he died and I haven't done anything to it as far as cleaning it up or anything because it's no special to me so please don't be too critical about it keep in mind that a kid wrote this ok? Thanks

You said you was alright

You said all was well, but the truth of what he wouldn't tell

And I know it's been a while since the day you left us

But I still can't believe you're gone

You seemed to leave in such a rush

And still yet I can't move on

I still picture your face

With all its peace and grace

 

I wish you could see all us kids now

And the red rose petals we put by your grave on the ground

We were all so silent with not a sound

As I thought silently, "Why'd you have to go?"

And "Why'd you have to leave?"

What I think is all I'll ever know

There's so many memories I need to keep

But at least I got to spend the time I did with you

That's one thing I won't forget until my life is through

 

A true man of God

With shoes way too big to fill

My love's with him above

And my heart just can't stay still

I cried so much at your funeral

More than I intended to

But the pain was so unbearable

And I couldn't find the strength to pull through

It seems to taunt me everywhere I go

Got my faith running on shallow

You're not here but yet I hear your voice

Call me crazy, but I'd still let you be up there where you're happy if it were my choice

 

I wish you could see all us kids now

And the red rose petals we put by your grave on the ground

Why'd you have to go?

Why'd you have to leave?

That's all I want to know

I need more memories of you to keep

 

I wish you could see me all grown up now

And the pink rose petals I put by your grave on the ground

You act tough on the outside

And you're strict as can be

But deep down, you're still lovable and kind

You always showed that to me

 

Yeah, I remember how you smile when you say God's name

I always keep in mind how you looked every Sunday

Admitting you're gone is too hard to do

So I'm gonna pretend it's not true

'Cause the truth is, I'm still missing you
