A Stranger Died Today

A stranger died today,

he went away.

I will never know him –

he will never know me.

A name was our bond,

my mother called him father,

I called him grandpa.

Farewell then, sir, farewell.

  1. Oh, that’s really sad! So you never knew him at all? I never knew either of my grandfathers, but that was because they had died years before I was born. Must be a very strange feeling for you!

  2. He remarried after my grandma died – long before I was born. His second wife kind of engulfed his life and broke ties with us. He was my last grandparent and the only grandpa I knew.
    I actually wrote this 12 years ago when he died.
