Losing a grandparent may be a child’s first encounter with mortality. A lot of emotions will be experienced during this sad time. Every child must be guided and supported in understanding that we all live, hopefully, for a long time and when we are called we will all die. Primarily, the parents are responsible in helping a child understand the death of his or her granddad.
We have gathered heart warming Granddad funeral poems that you can use to honour a special man in your life.
For My Grandpa By: Ilona Blake
I know we are all feeling a little bit sad,
That we’ve lost our Grandpa, our friend and our dad
Together we have cried an ocean of tears
As we feel so empty and hold many fears
But Grandpa would want us to know he’s in a good place
And that he watching us all with a smile on his face
As we have made him so proud, as proud as can be
That he has raised such a beautiful and special family
Thinking back now I really must say
I feel lucky and privileged to have known Grandpa to this day
For in my life, you have played a special part
The memories I will treasure and keep close to your heart
For me I am glad my little baby he got to meet
And for all of us, be grateful, his life is now complete
To each one of us he has loved and cared
And a family, be thankful for the good times we shared
Although he has gone we will always be together
And his spirit will live on each one of us forever
When you look to the sky, look for the brightest star
As that will be Grandpa looking down on us from afar
And now I would like to thank the good Lord above
For blessing us with our Grandpa with his kindness and love
Dear God, if it is not too much fuss
Take extra special care of our Grandpa as he is very dear to us
Grandpa if you are listening say a prayer for us every day
Be sure to protect us and guide us on our way
We know when God called you, you had to go
But we want you to know Grandpa we miss you and love you so
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Goodbye Granddad By: Sarah Harrison
So heaven has received another angel
The night sky another star
Your life has become a loving memory
I know you will never be far.
I know you are watching over me
As my life goes on
I will treasure the memories I have of you
I cant believe your gone.
You were a loving caring grandad
You were there for me a lot
You will always hold a place in my heart
A loving treasured spot.
You were really one in a million
A cut above the rest
All that knew you would agree
You simply were the best.
So grandad I will say goodbye
I love and miss you with all my heart
But as long as I have my loving memories
We will never be too far apart.
I Miss You By: Amanda Dwyer
I know it hurt you
It hurt me too,
But now that you’re gone
All I know is I miss you
You were there for so long,
I never thought you would leave.
I though you had another year
Waiting up your sleeve.
The day that you left
Was the saddest of my life.
I remember sitting at home
And crying all day and night.
I might be selfish
But I wish you were here.
Or if you stayed
For one more year.
I know you loved me
And I still love you too.
So I’m trying to be strong
Just for you.
I know I’m not perfect.
I know I’ll never be.
I just hope you’re up there
And that you’re proud of me.
You had to let go
Even though you were holding on for so long
But there’s not a day I don’t think of you,
And how you were so strong.
I just want to tell you
That you’re always in my heart.
Even though I still cry
I know we’re not apart.
Thinking of you, Grandpa…
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Grandad By: Jessica Miles
You made us smile
you made us laugh
it lasted for awhile
but now its just the past
Fishing was perfect
the only thing for you
but now you’re in heaven
you can fish there too
We see your face
and want to cry
our love for you
will never die
We care about you
in our hearts
we’ll love you always
even now we are apart
You gave us sweets
you gave us money
but only your love
is sweeter than honey
We will love you always as you can see
your the best grandad there ever will be
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Forever In Our Hearts By: Janice Andrade
My eyes are swollen from all the tears
My cheeks stained with there trails
My heart is broken open
And I am surrounded by my fears
You used to fight the monsters
And keep me safe from harm
But now you are not with me
Now I am alone
To walk the darkened path of life
Without your brilliant guiding light
Easily I shall lose my way
Track back for I fall astray
My hands they shake with sorrow
My heart it bleeds with pain
My soul forever lingers
Wishing you could have stayed
The house is dark and empty
Since the day you left
It used to have a joyful feel
Now nothing but the coldness of death
Your chair sits in the living room
Your memory on my heart
It seems like the sun will not shine
Since we are apart
But one day I will see you
And all will turn to bliss
I shall give you the strongest hug
And on my forehead you shall lay a kiss
For I know you are waiting
In heaven oh so far
But there are those who love you
And you forever stay in their hearts
Pop By: Joe Bernhard
