The Loss of my Grandchild

The first son of my son arrived the other day,

Brother and sister born hand in hand.

Oh...what a wonderful bond.

Who would have known

two would be forever torn apart?

When Liam said goodbye to his sister Keira

after a few brief moments of togetherness,

Who would have known

You would be forever torn apart?

The pain in my heart, the tears in my soul are forever.

I will never get to talk silly baby talk, to get a smile or two,

and to sing the sleepy lullabies I wanted to sing to you

I wanted to rock you in my rocking chair,

Rock you to and fro;

Grandfather’s arms are not meant to be empty.

From the day your dad grew up and went away

I waited and waited for this day, but not this day.

I waited for my first baseball game with you,

I waited for to hold your hand as you took mine,

I waited for our first story together as you climbed into bed,

I waited for your first step and your first leap.

If my love could have saved you, you would have lived forever.

Liam I will stop missing you…When I am with you.

Grand Dad
