My Grandfather, My Hero

a poem by Melyssa G. Sprott, USA - poetry writer, author, poet

I’ll never have
a truer friend
or ever know
a better man.

When no one else
could understand,
Grandpa could
as only he can.

My Grandpa, my hero,
a protector from pain.
He is so much to me,
yet, rarely complains.

Wise and patient
and ever-forgiving,
a life without Grandpa
would scarcely be worth living.

When it feels like
I’m against the world,
I remember I’m Grandpa’s Pumpkin,
his little girl.
