Grandpa's Love

I should have hugged you harder. I should have held your hand more. I should have called you often, Just to say hello. I didn't know how hard it's be, To let go of a grandpa like you. I cannot stop the memories, They roll like a picture show. Every hug, kids, and "I love you", Meaning more than ever before. You never declined to come get me, When I called all frightened during storms. You swore I'd be okay, And your words always kept me calm. You made me feel so special, Ever since I was a little girl. Until the very day you danced with me on my wedding dance floor. I'll forever remember how you looked at me, Like the room glowed when I was around. I hope you saw the same sparkle in me, Because you were around. I can't be mad you're leaving, I'm nearly 35 years old. All I can do is count my blessings, For ever having you to hold...
