    Tears streamed down my face when I saw you that way.
    I love you grandpa, I will love you everyday.
    As my tears raced down my face
    I knew youd soon be in a happier place.
    My love will follow you wherever you go.
    Oh how I loved you so.
    You told me everything as time passed by and by.
    I never wanted you to die.
    We did a lot together throughout the years.
    Its time to wipe away the tears.
    I want you to know.
    I will never let you go.
    I know you loved me too.
    My heart will always be with you.
    Now its time to say goodbye.
    Until I see you again.

    Love you Grandpa
