You never believed there was a God,
You thought the concept was just odd,
You didn’t mind for those that did,
But you’d decided as a kid.
You always put all others first,
Even though you felt much worse,
It was just the way you were,
That other people you’d prefer.
You helped me out with many things,
You had a hand in everything,
But yet you taught me to stand strong,
And always choose right over wrong.
Now you’re gone, I’d like to know,
Exactly where it is you go,
I realise that you’re not here,
But somehow I still feel you near.
For religion, you never cared,
Yet I wonder if you at times felt scared,
You’ve sadly passed and gone away,
It’s all been so sad since that day.
We missed you and wished you were well,
That you were here, stories to tell,
That you were there to hug and hold,
But time passed, you just got old.
I raise a toast to my dear Nan,
Sadly no longer here,
A person who only knew good,
Who always brought such cheer.
As a lady and a family girl,
She always made us proud,
Like a star that shines in darkest skies,
She would stand out in the crowd.
A hero and a friend to all,
She truly was a queen,
The sadness that’s she gone away,
In so many can be seen.
Let’s remember our Nan,
Well I called her mum,
She was full of the joys,
Always smiling, such fun.
She was loving and kind,
Always giving and sharing,
And although she suffered,
She remained always caring.
I miss those great hugs,
As do we all,
Or the smell of the flowers,
She kept in the hall.
There’s a gap in my heart that’s growing,
There’s a hole in my life so wide,
You’re gone now and just knowing
that, well Nan the tears I’ve cried.
There’s a space in my life that hollow,
A broken heart that will not mend,
Though I must not sit and wallow,
It’s hard not to, at the end.
So many years you lived the life,
So many things you’ve seen,
So many smiles that you created,
No you’re gone, so very mean.
So many friends that loved you,
So many to recall,
So many who will honour you,
Thought so special, by us all.
So now your time is over,
So does that mean that all is done,
No, as now we’ll honour you,
Our Nan, Our number one.
Gone but not forgotten,
One day here, now sadly passed.
Dear Nan you really lived a life,
Right to the very last.
Sadly no more hugging,
No more chats and no more tea,
But you gave me such a wondrous gift,
Encouraged me to just to be me.
For that I’m ever grateful,
Always your biggest fan,
To the woman who just made me smile,
I say thank you dearest Nan.
