Because, You're Perfect
Sending an ‘I love you’ just because is one of our favorites. Here we wanted to capture the love between a grandson and his Pop Pop. This was printed in a photo book with pictures of the two of them <3
I love my Pop Pop dearly
Now let me tell you why
It’s hard to pick my favorites
But I’ll do my best to try.
It’s the little things like building blocks
As you watch me tear them down.
And setting them for me again
Before I turn around.
Or trips around the living room
By foot or on your knees.
Forget knee pain and brush burns
You got around with ease.
Don’t forget the “rock-a-baby”
And sitting watching fish
It’s all the moments just like these
That I’ll keep and will cherish.
There is one thing that stands alone
One thing above the rest
The love and thought that comes along
Making my treasure chest.
Always know how much I love you
And how grateful I’ll always be
For these memories with my Pop Pop
Will forever stay with me.
And just to let someone know how much you appreciate them <3
I know sometimes you think I’m off
Or that I just don’t care
But you can’t see inside my heart
Or even times I stare.
I notice all the little things
And everything you do.
So know with every breath you take
How much that I love you.
For every load of laundry
For every single dish
to the sound of all your laughter
and every good night kiss.
You make me a better person
Please know this much is true.
I will forever be right here
And it’s just me and you.
Even grown sons want to let their father know just how much they care<3
I remember all the moments
Whether it be big or small,
And hope you know how much they meant
As I recount them all.
I remember how we wrestled
And I would punch and fight,
But somehow you would always win
Though I tried with all my might.
I remember all our camping trips
Even times when we’d break down
And running through the junkyard
Where you let us play around.
I remember learning how to build,
The tricks that you taught me
Which may have led to all those nails
I hammered to your tree.
I remember our times hunting
And getting my first deer
That’s why it’s so important
I go out there every year.
I remember to be grateful
For the help that you have brought
On each and every project
You come through without a thought.
I remember when you held my son
The pride felt in my heart
In knowing that I’d be okay
To take over your part.
To be the friend, the father,
The best man I could be
As I always will remember
The love you give to me.
