Poem 16. Dear Grandpa

Dear Grandpa

How I loved to hear you talk
experiances of your walk ,
you my idol. grandpa dear
how I wish, you were here.

You made my childhood bright
with great love your inward light.
 How gentle you  then were
Sweet grandpa miss you dear.

When others talk about you
I feel something in my eyes
May be, my love for you
comes out in the form of tears.

Why did you move away
leaving your child alone?
In my mind, be with me
guide me, on my way.

This poem was written for the prompt in Poets united's
