Grandpa's Last Day

On a beautiful morning one day in May - I went to my grandma and grandpa's to stay - My 
grandpa fixed breakfast and fed it to me - I felt so secure as I sat on his knee - I ate every 
bite of my eggs and my grits - For a snack later on we'd have cheese whiz and Ritz - But on 
this bright morning when the dishes were done - We went out on the porch and sat down in 
the sun - Grandpa picked up his paper and on that old porch swing - He went in a flash to 
meet Jesus the King - Before I got grandma I climbed on his lap - Hugged him and kissed 
him then my heart felt a gap - Although I was little my heart felt such dread - The moment I 
realized my grandpa was dead - This was a day the angels rejoiced - Soon grandpa would 
sing with his heavenly voice - Though I miss him dearly I know where he's gone - He's 
joyfully worshiping God at His throne - I can't wait to see him - I know he is there - He's 
praying that I will be kept in God's care - Soon we will be singing Amazing Grace as we all 
live forever in that glorious place.
