My Papou (grandfather) passed away on the 10th of August. I couldn't attend his funeral but I wrote a speech and I wrote this poem that was read at his funeral. He was always writing lists so I wrote a poem in the form of a list.
Here is my poem in memory of my Papou:
Number one of my list,
My Papou will be really missed,
Our lives have been blessed to have you,
You loved your friends and family,
You are not alone, your wife and daughter were already waiting for you when you opened the door,
The memories we have in our hearts will keep you alive,
The things that made you who you was the perfect mix,
You’ll be looking down at us from heaven,
Everything you’ve done we really appreciate,
Don’t worry about us we will be fine,
We’ll meet again, rest in peace until then.
