I saw Grampa last night,

Standing tall and strong

Watching over me,

As I played a song.

But then I woke,

And realized

This was a dream,

Tears filled my eyes.

I sat there in,

The morning sun.

Remembering him,

And all he had done.

Grampa taught me,

How to play

Upon his organ,

One rainy day.

It hadn’t been a dream,

It was a memory

Something no one

Can take from me.

He is not gone,

He shall never be.

For in all of us

There’s a part of he.

In some his smile,

In some his wit.

The things he taught us,

We will never forget.

Look at his children,

His grandkids too.

He is till there,

Shining through.

Through generations

He’ll continue on,

With tales of Grampa,

His legacy,

We build upon.

I saw Grampa last night,

Standing tall and strong.

He has not left,

He is not gone.

In loving memory of Joseph Hooper
