Bring Me Memories of Grandfather

Written by: James Marshall Goff

bring me around his blazing fireplace
and I'll tell you leprechaun stories

safe from their torment outside 

bring me to the train platform
and I'll grip grandfather's hand tightly

as we turn and wave goodbye

bring me the old shoes grandfather wore
and I'll dream the steps he took

to reach my side

bring me his tiny gold-rimmed glass
filled with sherry

and I'll toast grandmother's birthday

75 years ago

bring me his elegant blue suit
and I'll look through a 4 year old boys eyes

his final resting place 

In honor of William J. Bumford
My Grandpa
