This is the second poem I wrote for my grandfather. It came to me on January 12th, 2017, perhaps my darkest night to date. I structured the poem with simple, alternating verses between my punchlines, but the piece became even more beautiful when we discovered that it had a revolving effect, almost like a recycling triangle. I also titled it as I did because the first two lines are derived from “You Had Me At Hello” by A Day To Remember and because the thoughts of the poem recycle in my brain all the time. I hope you can connect to and enjoy this piece, my lovely readers.
And I hope you can feel how much I love and miss you, Grandpa.
A poem for my grandfather.
Hey there, everyone! I thought I would start my blog with the poem that has maybe meant the most to me of any I’ve ever written. I’ll surely be writing some non-fiction work about my grandfather, Roger, in the coming months, but for now, please enjoy the first poem I ever dedicated to him. This piece was written on May 13th, 2016, the day of my grandfather’s funeral, and I read it as a portion of his eulogy (which I wrote and delivered). Please ignore formatting discrepancies, as Word doesn’t transfer perfectly to WordPress.
