Hey You

Dear Chuy, 


A family left broke 

How many years since we spoke 

But now that I'm older, heart and soul both awoke 


When you left I was angry 

Abandoned, I blamed me 

Just the eyes of boy, nearly impossible to foresee 


I'm also at fault 

Set our relation on halt  

Avoid and neglect became my way assault  


Interest you showed 

But I choose the wrong road 

Missed opportunities of wisdom bestowed 


Yet you taught me to much  

The value of family and such 

when times got hard you were there as my crutch 


But now you are gone 

Alone, I'm withdrawn 

But time heals all, reborn I'm a swan 


I won't forget the pain 

As I stood in the rain 

watching you leave, there's no need to explain 


So much you have missed 

Years passed, candles wished 

promise to visit, together we'll reminisce 


As tears fill my eyes 

No final goodbyes 

Forever in my heart for here my hero lies. 


I love you Grandpa, R.I.P
