“UNDYING LOVE TO GRANDPA ROLY” by JTK.CA

My tribute poem to Dad’s dad, my late Grandpa Roly
(William Roland Ketchen),
written after his 1987 passing.

“UNDYING LOVE TO GRANDPA ROLY”
by JTK.CA

Many say you’ve gone away;
It’s very true, you have —
Lost to sight and sound and touch,
A grandpa and a dad.

Oh, how I miss your smile!
I miss your bear hugs too.
I loved to say, “I love you!”
And hear you say, “I kind of like you too!”

I didn’t grieve your “death,”
For life anew you have.
I only miss you desperately;
That’s all that makes me sad.
Lost to sight and sound and touch,
A grandpa and a dad.

The sadness lingers little.
It’s the beginning, and there’s no end!
Found to light and life and love,
My grandpa and my friend!

His birthday was Valentine’s Day, which was totally appropriate!
