You were always there for me

And I wish I could have been there for you.

But it looks like time

Won't see us through.

Paling faces, all of those places

Are just fading memories

Of the times we used to

Share.

Falling in shame

Weeping from some darkness

I wish I could stay with you

But it looks like time

Won't see us through.

You were my hero

You still are, but your face

Is fading.

I wish I could recall

All those wonderful Christmases and falls

But they're fading, just like

You.

Pictures and albums with your cheery face

Can't even being to place

How wonderful you really

Were.

So I sit here and think about you.

But I write this about you grandpa.

I will always write about you

Even though this box is closing,

You will remain…forever.
