Such a wonderful man, so selfless and divine.
We were all a part of his love until the end of his time.
Now he's passed away, ashes to ashes dust to dust.
It's hard to let go but sadly I'm afraid we must.
I felt so much sorrow as we lowered him in the ground.
It's so sad to know that he'll no longer be around.
While on this Earth, he left us a special gift.
And when we're deeply troubled, his memory is sure to give us a lift.
I wished that he was still alive but I'll never get my wish.
He was my grandpa and sadly he'll be missed.
With a voice as soft as a grain of sand,
he was a good Christian and a very special man.
(Dedicated to Burley Johnson who passed away August 3, 1994. He was a Leo like me.)
