Dear Grandfather,

I burn a candle for you today.

because you are in my heart.

You’ve been gone so many years,

& for many years I’ve thought

..of things I could have said to you

..of things I could have done

to make your time with us more pleasant

& to make our family “one”.

You never knew how much I cared,

you never knew of my love.

I’m hoping that somehow

you realize it from above.

I miss your smile.

I miss your charm.

..the way you lived your life.

You loved us.

I know it.

You’re concern for me was true.

.. but what I miss the most..

is the chance to say…

“I love you”.

live stress-free,
