An epitaph for my grandfather

Dear grandfather, you meant the world to me.
I loved you even as a baby. 
You played with me and gave me love,
Not something that every grandfather does. 
You didn't leave us that long ago.
It was only in 2013.
I remember that day like it was only yesterday. 
Sunny and warm, it was only eight in the morning.
You had asked for a napkin and we supplied,
But when we had gotten there you had already died.
I loved you paw paw, I really did, and I hope
Wherever you are you still love me.
I miss you, and wherever you are I know you miss
Me, too.
                           I love you, paw paw.
                                Rest in Peace

Katie, stopping by to read again friend. I was sad to read your poem the first time. It made me miss my gramps. He's gone now, however, he's in my heart always. He loves you, Unconditional love never dies remember that... SKAT
