Ed Goes To A Funeral

There’s something I have to talk about
because by myself it’s so hard to figure out.
It may be that if I speak about it aloud it’ll
help clear away the cloud.

Last summer my Grandpa passed away.
He was like a second dad from the time I was a baby.
Ever since it hasn’t been easy because I miss
talking to him everyday.

For 3 days we went to visit him as he laid in
his casket so straight.
He did look peaceful in that state and I put
the card in his casket for him I had made.

The worst part was the funeral because I knew
then it was final.
Then we had to go for the burial.
My Grandma and I cried, it’s normal.

After Church outside we could hear the bells
chiming as a final farewell.
It was a way for us all to tell how sad and
sorry we were he fell.

Of course, I was wearing the Special Hat.
I said I’d wear it no matter what!
It made me feel better wearing that.
It helped with the pain I was feeling in my heart.

After we all gathered for the wake.
It was an opportunity to remember and celebrate
how my Grandpa was a good man and not a fake.
I put on a happy face for everybody’s sake.

They tell me that time heals a broken heart but
I wonder when is it going to start?
My dad makes me feel a little better, he’s smart
when he says my Grandpa and me will never be apart.

I know all I have to do is get in touch but it’s
not the same without him and it’s really rough.
He’s no longer here and that’s tough.
I miss my Grandpa so very much!

Too bad Grandpa has passed away.
No doubt he was proud of me really when he
saw the Special Hat on my nosey.
I’m sure that’s what he’d say.

Grandma tells me he’ll always be my friend.
That I can talk to him just as often.
She says, “he’s only up there in heaven” and
that someday we’ll be together again!

So I talk to him every night.
As soon as I’m under the covers and put out
the light.
Then I feel him near and I feel alright.
I tell him I love him with all my might.

Still it’s not the same without him here yet
he’s in my heart and couldn’t be more near.
Now I have an angel protecting me I have no fear.
Now he knows how I really think and feel, he can hear.

I don’t want to forget Grandpa ever.
One day I know it’ll be easier.
I’ll always have my memories to keep and remember.
He’s a part of me forever!

Just because I can’t see him with my eyes anymore
doesn’t mean he’s not here just like before.
I love him just as much as I did prior.
I’m positive he does too and I can take that to the store.

I miss when we used to do thing like go for a swim
but just because he can’t be seen doesn’t mean I can’t
feel near him.
All I have to do is imagine him within.

I know he’s always with me like a shadow
following me wherever I may go.
Don’t ask me how I know.
I have no doubt he wants it to be so!
