Can you hear me now?
Can you hear me
Can you hear me now?
Can you hear me
Can you hear me now.
Mom and Dad, I appreciate you because you help me in life. Like what to do and what not to do. Because you put clothes on my back and put food in my belly everyday. Can you here me now!
My Grandpa who I didn’t talk to much. You inspired me the most. You told me not to give up. You’re who makes me happy and gives me that hope. You bless me with what you got. I miss you Momo, why did you go without saying goodbye? Not a day goes by that I don’t miss you. But everything is going good with me and our family. I still remember those stories you told me. Those days were fun and sometimes scary. I’ll always miss you and think about you. But you are who inspires me!
My grandma has passed away a while back. She has helped me out with a lot of trouble as a little child. She always had hope for me in everything. She fed me when I was hungry the most. She made me happy when I was sad or mad. She always entertained me when I was bored. She never got mad around me or my cousins. She still looks out at me even though she is not around anymore. She chooses the right or wrong for me when certain times come. Like a bad or good feeling about things.
He messed up again. He can’t live a happy life. He keeps trying but never stops. If I could talk to him I would ask him why. Why do you keep messing up your life by doing drugs? You keep telling us you want to stop but you never do. You keep asking us questions, but I have a question for you. Can you hear me now?
I want to ask her.
Ask her what
If she will.
But I’m confused.
Don’t know when
I’m simply confused.
Why did you go?
You left me here on this earth by myself.
You left me
I love you
You told me you will never go
You will always be here with me
I know it wasn’t your time to go.
You didn’t have to go.
You could have just said no
If God wanted you so bad
I could have just gone for you.
This is my poetry to my Dad
You taught me everything. You know about everything. Basketball is our inspiration. Basketball means everything to us. Basketball taught me to have good sportsmanship. Basketball taught me to be a good sport. You bought me everything I needed. So this is why you are important to me. I hope you can hear me now?
Thank you for always being there for me. Also thank you for giving me a nice home/shoes/clothes…
You buy stuff for me
Put clothes on my back
Teaching me right from wrong
Being good parents
Telling me to go to school everyday
My Dad tells me stuff
Like how to be working in the field
Being a good brother to my siblings
Having a healthy life
Being a good person
Even though you are not alive you inspired me to not let anything stop me from what I believe in. You inspired me to play an instrument and express those feelings and beliefs through music. If I could talk to you I would ask you what made you want to be a musician, or who inspired you to be one. I like Fiction and A Little Piece of Heaven. I like Fiction because it shows how even though you write humorous songs like A Little Piece of Heaven you’re still in pain and a whole new person on the inside.
Before my great grandmother passed I would shout to say I love you.
We would go over there and she would be playing bingo. It was cool to see her happy and every time we would go over there she would give us a stuffed animal and I still have some of them. I liked to go over there because I would get to see her. If you can hear me I would like to say I love you.
I wish I could have told him I loved him one last time.
He was a great guy.
He was always nice.
I remember when we went to the beach he would hold my hand when we went into the water.
We would walk along the shore and let our feet sink into the mudd.
I would dance in front of him and he would clap and say good job to me.
The last time I saw him was when I was in New York when I was about 8 and now I am 14.
He died at the New York Yankee Stadium.
If he was still here I would tell him that I love him and that I appreciate him being my Godfather.
I wish you could still be here for me Godfather.
My Grandpa. There he was when I was alone. If I needed help with anything. If I can’t do anything he would make me do something. If I was bored he would make any plain old thing interesting. If I was in trouble he would help me with a solution, and if it fails we would come up with a new one.
I am the person who you see now. I haven’t changed. When I see the stuff that reminds me of my grandfather it brings me to tears. I understand that he is not here. He is in a better place and he is happier.
