I will mourn but I will never forget
All of the lessons that you’ve taught
Though I stumble in this moment upset
You’re still here to guide in my thoughts
I will grieve but I will not despair
For I’ll always know exactly where you are
Passing from this world is tragically unfair
Yet you’ll live on within many hearts
I will weep but I will not lose control
For the legacy you leave will live on
A comfort that does it’s best to console
For in us you are never truly gone

[The preceding poem was written for my Grandpa who recently passed away. I wrote this and two others to be recited at his funeral. This particular piece was read at the crematorium.
I think it’s a very accessible piece, which will have the ability to touch anyone who has experienced loss.
Once again, regardless if you like this, thank you for reading.]
