This is something my closest friend wrote for her grand dad. This is for her, her love for her grand dad.
Ode to my grandad, by Baneesha Bedi
Never have I felt a loss like yours,
That defies the very Earth’s laws.
One minute, you were caring for me,
But then life passes you by,
And in the blink of an eye,
I was here, caring for you.
You were always here, with me, my guide,
Can’t remember a time, you weren’t by my side,
To me, you were immortal, invincible,
Forgetting you, your love, is infeasible.
Love is the connection we share,
A bond, like ours, is really rare.
Love, a contact I bind you eternally with,
For you know, life goes on is a myth.
For time stopped with you,
There was nothing I could do.
I live in your shadow now,
My life goes, yet I know not how.
I had to let you go,
For God had chosen so.
But you were the air I breathe,
Without it, how can I not grieve?
The price of love, you pay with grief.
I just wish God was not a thief.
