For Ernest…

I remember when we had walks in the park

I remember when we went berry picking

I remember when we collected tree bark

I remember the collection of clocks ticking


I remember the dusty books

The ancient, played with toys

I still remember the way you look

How you always brought me joy


I remember the sweeties on the fireplace

The beautiful, tasty, salty porridge

How you covered when I broke the vase

Our memories will never go in storage


I remember the letters for you I wrote

I remember our hospital visits

When I saw you cry, the lump in my throat

From earth to heaven, safely you transmit


I wont ever forget, my thoughts couldn't be furthest

I will always remember….for my Grandad Ernest…xx
