for my grandpa

nina 2002 (Paraguay)

and what hurts the most,
is that i didn’t get a chance to say my final goodbye.

to feel your arms around me for one last time.
to hear you call me by the particular nickname,
you used to call your grandchildren.

we had so much ahead of us.
places to visit,
and new memories to create.

but i guess life thought,
we’ve had enough.

i’ll always remember you, grandpa,
and my love for you will forever remain intact.
