    I never thought I would come this far

    Or have to go through what I did to get here

    Being back at this place i remember how it was

    Since, I have lost so much, and so many

    The times will never be the same, as people go

    Leaving brands of themselves in my soul

    No matter how much I know has happened

    The seconds still go by, making it further and further

    I cannot ever be in that time again.

    I walk through the halls where you walked

    I sit at the table where you sat

    When I laughed at the crumbs in your mustache

    I look up at the flag that you saluted

    And the flowers that are blooming around it

    I wish you were here to see the striped roses

    The tree you planted has grown up, as have I

    And even though I don’t recognize who I see

    It’s memories that let me know I’m still me

    I hope it’s nice where you are,

    I’ll always miss you, grandpa
