Opa is the Dutch word for grandfather. A word with a lot of meaning. A special word. I have never met my other grandfather, so opa for me, is only one person. One extremely special person. For me, opa is not a father of a parent, opa is my Opa. My friend, my parent and my biggest support in life.
Dear Opa, you told me, that we both have known from the beginning that you would go before me And fortunately you where right. But Opa, it hurts so much to loose you, your strength your love, wisdom and your jokes And your eyes, that told me everything. And Opa, your hands, that welcomed me that held me, and wished me well In our own way. Opa, i am so happy i was allowed to see you enjoy, my stories my presence, success and tears Until the very end. And Opa, i am so lucky i was allowed to enjoy, your presence your support, pride and love And your incredible stories. Sweet Opa, i am so thankful you have always been there, for all your wisdom for everything i have learned from you From my first step, to your last day. Opa, we have had so much fun, all the things we have done all the places we have been For all the memories we have created together. And Opa, i am so grateful, that you accepted me that you always understood me That you have known me, just the way i am. Dear Opa, i am so blessed, that a part of me is you that we shared everything That you are my Opa, and so much more. And Opa, i am so thankful, for being there when things got hard for all those conversations For holding you hand till your last breath. Opa, you deserve your rest, i will never forget you i will always miss you And i will always keep remembering. But Opa, i will also continue, with everything you were so proud of with improving and learning even more While i keep thinking of you. Dear Opa, Thank you. For everything.
