"I Wish You Were Here"




I have seen your pictures.

I have seen your face in my dreams.

You were a very compassionate, caring person.

You were my mom's father, my grandmother's husband, my grandpa.

I could just remember hearing stories of all the great things you did for everyone.

Even though I never was able to personally meet you, I no you are still with me all the time.


You were always so helpful and nice to everyone who came in your path.

I wish you were here.

Why did you have to go?

My grandma, your wife always explains to everyone how much she loved you and that she would never remarry.

You would never let her lift a finger no matter what.


And all my life I have always appreciated your existence.

You have influenced me so much.

Sometimes I flipped through old photo albums and see your picture.

And then I say to my self "I Wish You Were Here".

A few nights ago I had a dream.

It was that you became immortal.

And we could see each other all the time.


My mom always told me of how when she was little you drove her everywhere and helped her with everything.

But today in the year 2006, the days go by, the leaves fall of the trees.

And you are still in my mind.

And I still say in my mind "I Wish You Were Here".
