Grandfather, Deda

Grandfather, Deda
I want to remember you
the way you were
when I was small:

larger than life
I remember
looking up at you
you took me into your arms
I could see the whole world from there

A man of no words
it wasn't what you said
it's what you did
and what you did
was always be there
every birthday, graduation, holiday
you were there
Silent, Proud
your presence was always felt
and now it will be missed
