Our time on earth

So brief we share

Yet you Grandad

Were always there

Beside the matriarch

You stood

Knowing what to say

And when you should

You watched a son

Be taken away

Yet even then

No strength did stray

From the sidelines

You were a rock

An open door

On which to knock

You endured much pain

Body and mind too

Yet no question

You persevered through

No man could have rolled

Tobacco like you

Nor invented the cool things

Like you used to do

Sneaking late x-files

With our leftover lunch

Or getting up early

For semolina for brunch

Watching you so careful

As you cut your gems

Treating in life

As you would your friends

Family being held

Even more dear

Loved and cherished

Even now you’re not here

An amazing husband

A father so true

A grandfather so special

A great grandfather too

So many who love you

Who will miss your smile

To see again

They’d travel miles

Though your time with us

Has come to an end

A new path awaits

For you to begin

We will never forget you

A promise we make

We love you Sid Battams

Our memories of you never to shake…
