This was my first poem. I wrote it when I was about eight years old and I had just lost my grandfather. Besides the death of my best friend, losing him was one of the first experiences in which I had to let go of someone I deeply loved. These are the thoughts of a heartbroken girl coming to terms with the loss of her hero.

My Grandpa was a hero

In very many ways,

He made us all feel good inside

On sad and rainy days.

--

He was a great guy

And you'd feel the same way too,

If just like to me,

He was a great grandpa to you.

--

Grandpa was taken from us in September,

I could not believe that he died,

We all now have a hole in our hearts,

For seven days we all cried.

--

The thought that I'd never see him again

Just stole my breath away,

But I know when I get to heaven

We will be together again someday.
