dont cry because it is over smile because it happened

that October day a butterfly danced
across my eyes and landed on my shoulder
i felt broken beyond repair
when Gods angels came and took you away
i don't understand why you had to go so early you were only 56
my heart still feels the pain like when i saw you in that cold bed
with your hand folded so softly over your belly with the rosary
i placed a letter with you as my tears did flow
i am unable to forget your love
the love of a person who knew so much and never told a soul
that same butterfly seems to find me no matter where i am
i have you tucked away and safe
in my heart
i can't wait to see you again in heaven with your arms ready with a smile so big
but till then i am keeping you
tucked away and safe in my heart forever

The author's comments:
i wrote this poem this morning when i was really missing him and all i could think about was him and the memories began to flow along with my tears. Now is my guardian angel in heaven watching over me every day.
This poem is about my grandfather whom i was very close to
i hope you will enjoy and feel the emotion that i have hidden in it and the only way to find it is to read it
