Treasure Island

joe kanon

To the grandpa i never got to met

To the grandfather I never got to meet.

Even though I never meet u
I still have this empty feeling
Painful, unrecognizable emotion
With every image I’m dreaming
In my dreams, I often dream of who you were
By listening to my nana, you were a very big deal to her
These stories that I want to listen to because I need to know
Because my birth was after you death, life sure gave me crucial blow.
I have your name across my arm, to be a bit closer to your presence
When I can’t put a face on the name, emotions can get intense
But I know my mothers dad, has now got to meet you
With his name too on my arm, you two can finally get too
Meet the father of my mother and see what a great man that you are
Watching us from heaven, and proud from afar
If I had one wish, id wish I cud have meet you
I wasn’t planning on coming to life, so im sorry that I miss you
Life went by so quickly, we are much older now,
With a clear focus in life, my dad is good dad,
Because you showed him how.

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
