Dear Jiisan
I miss you
I know that I hold some things against me
that made your passing hard
but I may have saved your image
you wouldn't want me to see you like that
in a darker light
even with how much more time we would have had
together
I realize now how selfish a young child can be
how selfish I was
I have changed so much
so much I can't write it all down
I have found something we have in common
to bad we couldn't enjoy it together
art
I see you did art
I felt so confused why I was drawn to it
I felt no connection
with anyone in the family
until I learned that you made paintings a such in your spare time.
I felt a piece of my question answered
but I wish you were there
to see me take after you
you being proud of me
but I know you were
even when I was at that young age
at four
it has been twenty years now
and I still miss you.
