My Father, My friend

< The spoken word of what you were to me would be grandfather. but in my heart you were my father by every meaning of the words. You were my father when I I said my first word. My friend and friend through my whole life. When my birth parents wern't around, you rasied me as one of your own. My Father, My friend. you were my rock when I couldnt be strong. My guide when I was doing wrong. You wiped every tear I shed from my eyes, and always gave me a reassuring smile. Letting me know everything would be aright. My father, My friend. I'll miss you.My father, my friend. I love you. My father, my friend, I'll do what I must to go on. Daddy you are now and forever more, My father, my friend. God bless you. Amen.

    Thank you for taking the time to read my poem, it was a goodbye to my Grandfather who raised me, so grateful that I had such a great role model in my life.

    I am so glad you enjoyed the poem it was my good-bye to my grandfather when he passed. Glad I can give a person a smile or just moment to remember someone we lost.

    Thank you so much I cry every time I read the poem to any of my friends or family, He was the man I aways wanted my future husband to be like, He and my grandma took me when the world and my mother left me. so thank you for the kind words.
