My Grandfather

Such a little man

But full of heart 

You've helped me until this day

It teared my soul apart

Knowing it's been 7 months since you've been gone

But the things you taught me have brought me far along

Never cope with anger rather turn into nice

Never let your feelings get to you, always have to think wise

You said life always has a meaning

Use your skills to do something, don't be day-dreaming

I grew up not having any school just being a farmer

Now its your time to use that education that's going to take you farther

Every time I lost a game he said,

Don't worry champ nobody's perfect 

and everytime I failed an exam he said 

A failing grade doesn't mean a failing brain

I've had ups and downs in my life

From parent's divorcing

Friends joinng gangs

People leaving me 

My grandfather never left me 

Becuase he couldn't walk anymore

But even when he couldn't walk he told me

Nico I can't use my legs anymore

But the rest of my body is functioning

In life use what you have instead of struggling 

I'll admit you taught me more than anyone else has done

more than my dad and I'm his only son

To you I want to thank you for everything you've taught me

From education, sports, reality, all the things I needed to see

Feeding the cows to learning spanish to kicking a ball to reading a book

Now look how far it has took

Me into a step closer to college

If it wasn't for you I wouldn't have this knowledge

The bond I had with you touched me really deep

Well it's night now grandpa goodnight I'll talk to you in my sleep.

I love you.
