“Fairwell” (poem / poetry)

Today, a great being will finally rest,

They’ve had a grand time, and made us feel blessed,

Many have gathered to pay their respects,

To say farewell to them, and wish them the best.

Their journey’s not over, it’s barely begun,

Without the constraints of this third dimension,

They can finally roam free, with no pain or tension,

While their love remains with us, without exception.

Two days ago was my Grandad’s funeral, and due to him meaning so much to so many people, the service for him was held at the Cathedral.

It was an absolutely beautiful service and send off, there were dozens of touching moments, and I couldn’t help but be filled with immense pride, for the inspirational man he was, and how much he was, and is loved.

He had a cracking sense of humour, his own unique style, he was a trend setter, plus cared for his community, sharing his huge heart and his passion for life wherever he could.

To know him was an honour, to call him family is a privilege, to see the strength of his ongoing legacy is both captivating and uplifting. If I manage to create half as much of a positive impact, on the lives of others as he did, mine will have been a life well spent.

So, fairwell Grandad, you will be missed, but never forgotten. May your soul travel onward with peace and happiness.

Love and Respect always,

Your Grandson, Clinton.

Author: Following Whispers

Hello, I'm Following Whispers, an English poet and author who has been writing for over two decades. I'm a self-professed geek who can get deep sometimes, but I personally don't take myself too seriously, I just love to have fun, plus inspire myself and others. In my early twenties, I realised that beauty can be born out of not only love, but also pain and other motivations. The more I used writing poetry to make sense of my busy mind, the more it helped me to find a silver lining in even the darkest emotions, experiences, observations and topics; find positivity even in the face of extreme negativity; find strength when I was being forced to feel weak; and find hope that my tomorrows would be brighter. I began publishing my writing in 2018 and currently have three books available Worldwide, including my most recent release "Poems That Move You". I have bared my soul in each and every one of my poems, and I'm confident that you'll get just as much from reading them and relating them, as I did from writing them. Please feel free to look around my site and read the free poems I've shared there, after which, why not pick up a book of mine, drop by Instagram, connect with me and say hello!
