Grandparents Grieve Too

Some people may forget
Grandparents grieve too
They watch their children grieve
And don’t know what to do
They try to make things better
But sometimes it makes it worse
Their grandchild should be driven home
Not driven in a hearse
They have not just lost a grandchild
They watch their child in pain
They hold it all together
But their grief isn’t the same
To see your child hurting
For the baby they have lost
They want to take the pain away
From those they love the most
They speak words of encouragement
From their wise words of wisdom
In time you will get stronger
And your child not forgotten
Sometimes they might not show us
The pain we want them too
But I assure you they are hurting
Just as much as you
But themselves as a parent
Feel they must stay strong
Their own child is grieving
And the process is long
It’s not a case of taking months
It’s a case of taking years
But every step along the way
They’ll be there to wipe your tears
