My Grandpa Always Sad

Sad depressed people all around

Some are happy others are down

My grandpa always sad

It just made me feel all around bad


He locked the room all the time

I just wanted to climb to see whats up the crime

It felt like he was all mine

But I was just a little girl who was just nine


He read the newspaper every day

It was his only yay

To hide his depressed life all the way

He was an old eighty years old man

That never had an interesting plan


He didn’t have a problem

Everything around him was like a blossom

He just didn’t feel right

With cancer attacking him all night


He didn’t deal with it

He just quit

His goodbyes were way too soon

Near May or even near June
