To my loving grandpa 4-21-2021


A bad dream,

The unexpected.


You forever changed everyone’s life here,

Across the ocean,

One hour.


1:30 am,

I couldn’t bear to look at you,

Your face.


Everyone moved so quickly,

Quick feet,

Quick heartbeats,

Quick breathing,

Quick CPR,

Quick sirens.


I didn’t want to believe it,

I still don’t,

A bad dream.


5:15 am,

A time where breathing stopped,

Hearts dropped,

Hopes died.


I am sorry for turning my back on you when you asked me if I ate today,

I am sorry for pushing you away when I was studying,

I am sorry for finding you annoying sometimes,


All you wanted was to talk to someone,

Share your stories,

To share your bright,




I will always remember the happy memories,

Your smile.


We will always remember you saying,

“wish you all the best,” to everyone,


From here on,

We wish you all the best.


We love you.
