Just Like Him
(Grandfather Poems)

He taught me how
to build a fire ..
He gave me hope
and sparked desire.

He taught me how
to love and care ..
Common sense
and how to share.

He watched me grow
through every year ..
And guided me
through my worst fear.

He listened to
my every dream ..
And tolerated me
at my extreme.

I talked to
him everyday ..
We never ran out
of things to say.

Without him I don’t
know who I’d be,
Who he is
lives on in me.

He taught me how
to be just like him ..
And I already
am within.
