Forgotten Things

By @turntechbandkid_

This is a poem I created off the top of my head about my grandpa and the time I lost him. I got sad while typing this and got carried away. But it turned out pretty good anyways. The song in the poem is Toes by Zac Brown Band. It has a lot of meaning to not only myself, but also my dad.

Chapter 1

The Darkest of Reds

Listening to that melody

Brings me to tears.

I remember a time when

He was still here.

Singing, Dancing, Laughing.

It made me full of joy.

I loved him then

And I love him now.

Yet, he’s gone.

Nothing can be done.

It causes me sarrow.

Heartbreak. . . .

He may be gone,

But at least he isn’t suffering.

That’s what makes me happy,

Happy he’s doing better.

That song

It makes me a mushy mess.

It has a lot of meaning,

Bringing back old-happy-memories.

From when he wasstill here,

From when I was young.

This was the last song

He heard before he left.

He and my dad exchanged

Verses about 3 days

Before he passed.

He passed of cancer,

Hadslipped into a coma.

I was 9 years old,

It was my first HUGE

Heartbreak, I felt empty.

I was too depressed to

Go to his funeral.

But now that I’m older

I regret not going.

I love him and

Always will.

The reason I’m in tears,

Is because of the colour Red.

    Rest in peace to your grandfather. This was very beautiful, and I’m sure your grandfather doesn’t mind that you didn’t go. You love him just the same.
