As I grew and learned to stand up on my own, sometimes I was scared and I felt alone. But then you were standing by my side. You held my hand again and taught me not to hide. I am older and wiser now, now I understand the strength that was within me comes from Grandpa’s hand. Love, Jason ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ --- Letting Go --- The angels gathered near your bed, so very close to you. For they knew all of the things that you were going through, I thought about so many things, I tightly held your hand, Oh, how I wished that you were strong and healthy once again; But your eyes were looking homeward to a place beyond the sky, where God will hold you always, it was time to say goodbye; I struggled with my selfish thoughts -- For I wanted you to stay So we could walk and talk again, Like we did -- just yesterday; But God still knows what is best And I knew God loved you so So I gave you life’s greatest gift; The gift of letting go.
