by Robbie Kennedy Bennett

My Grandad was a quiet man
But still liked family around.
While Nan sat there talking
He would hardly say a sound.
Sitting in his armchair
Hearing others talk,
Never ever offending
Often liked to walk.
I can see him in his suit and tie
Looking neat and smart,
My Grandad was a quiet man
With the biggest kindest heart.

My Nan she always told stories
Of the old days and years gone by,
She must have been a young rascal
I can tell by that look in her eye.
The cheekiest grin on a lady
Will never be seen no more,
I am sure up in heaven God is smiling
Since Jane Rowley has passed through his door.

MY UNCLE BILL © Robbie Kennedy Bennett

My Uncle Bill
had a skill that the ear was pleased
the keys he gently teased
he had skill, my uncle Bill

when the need was for someone
a special one to lift the atmosphere?
we had someone here
with that skill, we had my Uncle Bill

playing in the background
bringing a tune to the foreground
suddenly we all sat still
and listened to Uncle Bill

we knew, admiration grew
the man there playing that melody
could play all night long
soon to bring out a smile and a joyful song

tunes may fade
and keys may not get played
when I see them I'm listening still
and I hear my Uncle Bill.
