Granddad in Heaven

You left before you could meet them
‘I want to live to see my grandkids’ you’d say
Unfortunately you never got the chance
So let me introduce them to you today

There are three of them
Ages one, four and seven
A little boy and two little girls
Who call you their granddad in Heaven

The little boy is an architect at heart
A real clever little fella too
But what makes him really special
Is that he is the very split image of you

Your second grandchild is a little drama queen
Who loves singing, dancing and ballet shoes
A caring heart and entertaining character
Is what she inherited from you

Then there is the last little girl
With a spirit so completely free
Clever, entertaining, with a caring heart
You can call her grandkid number three

Three little kids
Different...yet so similar too
Because each little one
Inherited a character of you

They are such happy kids
Of whom you would be so proud
You will never be forgotten
Because we see you in these kids running around

The eldest often talks about you
The middle one does too
The little one does not talk as well just yet
But when she looks at your pictures, she calls you granddad

*Dedicated to my father who passed on 8 years ago and never got to meet my sister's two kids and my daughter
