Piura Upparluq! (Goodbye Grandpa)

The life he lead was full and long
He taught us love, life and song
His time well spent, always going
His skills, his love always showing

He touched us all in some way
Whoever he saw everyday
His smile, his laugh, ever there
You’d see him almost everywhere

He spent his life showing us how
Our culture, traditions we know now
For it’s our Elders that keep us alive
Our past they show us, then we thrive

So although no longer with us here
Our memories and hearts hold him dear
For now he’s off in heaven above
Shining down, still sharing his love

Piura Upparluq we now say
You taught us well, you lead the way
So off you go now, in peace you’ll rest
Having given us all your best

We shall miss you every day
Your soul, your memory now we’ll pray
But remember you we will, now we cry
Heavenward you’re off, away you fly!
