Understanding A Grandparents Grief

When a grandparent loses a grandchild
It's a hurt beyond compare
For they cry not only for the child
But for their children whose tears they share

So in effect it's a double hurt
Feeling like an empty shell
For trying to console their child
And console themselves as well

So if someone ever tells you
Of a Grandchild that had died
Remember they have a double pain
And understand the tears they've cried
