Can you see me?

There's so much I don't know about you

So much great things I wish I could see

My dad tells me stories

Of the great man you were

You were humble but proud at the same time

You were so full of love, similar to my dad

You came from a truly harsh time

But you came through it OK

I wish I could have known what you were like

Before you slowly lost your mind

I'm sorry I never came to see you in the home

But I couldn't see you like that

I couldn't bare you not remembering me

I don't even care what the good Lord above thinks of you

All He sees is a little carpenter

But then, I see a man who I am proud to call

Grandad

I see a man who I love and miss dearly

I only hope I too can become someone you can be proud of.
