My grandfather passed away today, at 17:04 he fell asleep and became my angel.
He was like my best friend, the one I always went to to tell my secrets and these
cool little hide-away places I found. We once found a circle of trees in a feild not
far from my house, it looked like no one had ever been there so we claimed it as
ours. It was and is my happy place when everything goes wrong and I need to run away.
I have spent so many nights out there just looking up at the stars. When ever he came
around we went there, just me and him. He'd give me sweets and tell me not to tell
any one because it was more than I was normally allowed. When we went home my mum
would ask where we went and his answer would always be, 'We went to Mars to see if
the aliens wanted Sam back.' We couldn't help but laugh.
I was really upset when he died, but then I rememberd that I don't need to be sad.
He's not really gone he'll always be in my heart to protect me and guide me.
At about 4pm my mum and dad told me they were going to the cafe to get a coffee and
have a few minutes to themselves. I told them I wanted to stay, I wanted to talk to
granddad more. We had a lovely time talking to each other, I told him everthing that
had happened in the few weeks I hadn't seen him.
I told him about Alaki. He's the one person I felt I could tell without being judged.
I told him that I couldn't wait to get home so I could talk to him, that every time I
get a message from him my heart lifts a little, that every time I get down he is
there to make everything better.
My granddad smiled and held my hand as tight as I could.
He told me, "You are a truely lucky boy Sam, you are only seventeen and you have
found the one you are meant for. Alaki sounds like a pure angel and you will both be
happy for years."
I'll never forget those words.
They'll be etched in my heart forever. <3
So, this is good bye for now Grandad.
Rest in peace.
