Shantel del castillo 1989 (Maui)

it's been six long years,
since i've heard your voice or seen your face
at least u don't have to suffer anymore,
your with god in a better place
i always think of u,
and the memories that we shared
your one of the very few men who loved me,
and one of the few who really cared
next month is your birthday,
so i'll write u a poem than a song
as hard as it is to write this,
i know you're where u belong
an angel watching over us,
protecting us from all the bad
u truely are deep inside my heart,
and the best grandpa i ever had.
