To GrandpaYou were here once,
But now you're gone.
I can still hear your voice
Arguing with Grandma
Playfully- of course
It's how you got along.
I can see you
In the kitchen
Cooking your special Sheppard's pie
Or cooked breakfast for my sisters and me
Or walking down the street to get fresh bread
I regret I never knew you better
An Ocean and a Continent
Have separated us for many years.
My visits are too few
The distance too long
The communication too short.
But, My Grandfather,
Know that I have always loved you
For you are my irreplaceable, funny,
Loving, smart, scientific, argumentative
Grandpa. And that will never change.
SleeplessI am tired but I cannot find rest
No matter where I search it eludes me
No matter what I do it escapes me
Only the rain can ease my troubled mind
But it is never enough
Nowhere to rest, doomed to wander
Sleepless I lie, dreamless I fly
For there is no sleep for the weary
No rest for those silently groaning in pain
Nothing but this endless grey road stretching out
Into the monotonous landscape
I need somewhere safe
To lay my head
Where there is peace
And calm waters
For I am tired but I cannot find rest
Keep in Touch!
