I spent all day with my Grandad Jim
We talked a lot he was frail and thin
Two days later he passed away
I’ll never forget what he told me that day.
Jim was radiant a beacon of light
Peaceful and blissful he glowed in the night
He knew he was dying but he didn’t care
I could see in his eyes he had so much to share.
He gave me an insight a gift for life
Death is an angel a beautiful wife
Live each day with gratitude and kind
And never be controlled by fear or mind.
Walk on this earth with no purpose or need
Never get attached to anger or greed
Life is a journey not a race to be won
Don’t be so serious life should be fun.
Only speak out when it’s from the heart
Jealousy and torment will tear you apart
Never waste time trying to impress
You are already whole eternal and blessed.
I’ll never forget those words from Jim
They stay with me always through thick and thin
My dear old Grandad in spirit alive
God bless you Granddad from your nephew Clive.
