Yizkor for a Jewish Grandfather

Grandfather, your hands were marked like lines on a map

And your old eyes saw all times and tides.


You survived and thrived

And visit me still

Even though you have long since left.


O, Ageless Explorer,

Your heart may be in the ground

But you have become the foundation of my step.


For when I step, you step with me

In the great, endless journey that never truly rests.
