About the Poem
My grandfather has touched my life and my heart with his unconditional love. He lives five hours away, and is in a home. He has Alzheimer's and doesn't remember much, but he is the love I will always cherish.

You stood by me through it all
You saw me stumble
You saw me fall
You picked me up and held me tight
In your arms the world felt right
You washed away my tears and fears
You walked with me through the years
You were there when my children came
You opened your arms once again
You showed them love - you showed them strength
You did for us at great lengths
What we treasure most of all
Is your love through it all
Your handsome face
Your big blue eyes
Your heart of gold eternal size
I miss your smile when I'm away
I think of you each and every day
My Love for you will never die
You are the apple of my eye
