Grandpa is Coming for Grandma
Grandpa is coming for Grandma
We all know it…we all feel it
Just as the sun can be felt through a window pane
Grandpa’s presence comes here time and time again
Day by day he comes
And he lingers by her side
He waits for death to claim her
When heartbeat and breath subside
Grandpa sees her fight the battle
We all know she just can’t win
And tells her to be brave and strong
She’ll soon be with him again
He gently takes her hand in his
The softest of touches he makes
Grandpa’s spirit gently caresses her skin
When he touches his sweetheart’s face
And on occasion Grandma feels him now
How wonderful it seems!
A moment’s rest through this battle stage
Like a sweet and beautiful dream
And for one brief moment she forgets her pain
And feels much like a young, new bride
She yearns to see Grandpa’s face again
To never leave his side
So while we wait through days and hours
Till the dreaded goodbye must come
Grandpa waits with growing excitement
He’s been without her far too long
Grandpa understands the sorrow we feel
For we also once mourned him in grief
He stands by our side to lend us support
And hopes we’ll find comfort and peace
He wants us to know that he is okay
And Grandma will soon be too
Death’s separation didn’t diminish their love
Through years of longing…it only grew
ALT. VERSE Through deepest longing…it only grew
And so with each breath as we see Grandma
Lose her grasp on this life she’s known
She’s moving closer towards Grandpa
For he’s come to take her home…
And when that final, sacred moment came
Grandma slipped just beyond our grasp
And Grandpa embraced her with open arms
Welcoming her home at last
So for all in th’hereafter we don’t understand
Yet someday hope to know
We are certain Grandma is safe and well
For Grandpa came and carried her home
