I Am Not Grateful He is Dead

By: Catherine Brennan

Its 9/10/01
Grateful Dead music is blasting
In their big silver Ford.
They are on their way
To buy some furniture
For their brand new house.

The little girl is only eighteen months old
Is dancing
Her dad is smiling.
His short dark brown hair
Is blowing in the wind
From the window

She will be a future #1 fan of the
Grateful Dead
Just like her dad
That's what everybody wanted
After he was gone.

Now that he's no longer here
No more encouragement
No more rides in the car
No more Grateful Dead music
That was their last day together
I miss you dad...
