A grandfather I never saw

Five days before I was born,
my dear grandfather was gone.
Not knowing the cause 
why he went .
There was a pause 
through which i was sent

oh father! oh father !
cried my mother .
Was it to take him 
Oh god!
you sent me without a word
i thought

By came an old woman
whose hands were weak and swollen.
She said with a smile-
When one light goes mild ,
another light will shine.

then i knew -
Even though i never saw him, 
he lives deep in my heart 
where his soul never dies.
