To-do List:

Ask him about his stories
Listen to his past with undivided attention
Learn his lessons
Laugh with him
Let his laugh erupt in my ears
Hear his views
Practice his golf tips

This to-do list
was moved all around
my calendar
my mind
my heart
now, a day late
and a dollar short
the to-do list
has faded
and can no longer be read
to him
by me
the regret in my heart
is real and heavy
and will burden my sleep
forever


Grandpa – I love you so much and miss you with all my heart. You taught me more than you will ever know. Most of all you taught me not the sweat the small shit, life is too short not to be doing what I enjoy and that I can do anything I want to as long as I dedicate myself to it whole heartedly. ~ Enjoy your Peace in Heaven ~
