my grandpa

i remember cocoa puffs at night, with you in the candle light
i recall the stories you told me,
about the war and how times were hard
how you walked to school barefoot,
and i remember thing"wow that must have been tough"
i miss you laugh are you happy now?
without the suffering and hurting?
i hope you're happy
you just were getting so skinny then
near the end
and we all knew it was coming
saw something in your eye that said you'd had a good life
now let me go
you lost your baby fine hairs
and got so pale
the night i found out you gave up the fight
it hailed, those water droplets were as translucent as your skin
and i thought it was god crying for me
but they were happy tears,
because you were no longer suffering,
they were assuring me
that you were happy.
you'll see him again.i promise
