Dear Grama,

I though I was a little to late to say my last gooddbye
I thought I was a little to late to see you one more time
I thought I was a little to late to ask for one more day
Now I start to realize everyday was one more day you stayed
You blessed me with your kindness and you left me with your love
You promised me you'd be okay when you left to fly above
I'm thankful for the memories that you left with me behind 
Your voice, your face, your sweet scent of smell will linger by my side
I wonder if you hear me when I cry for you each night
If only I could hear you say (once more) that everything will be alright 
I miss you oh so very much and I hope you understand 
That its hard for me wothout you here to comfort me and hold my hand 
You left without a warning and you were gone before goodbyes, now time had forced us to 
appreciate your prescence you left behind
Im now left on this journey that I must complete to make you proud 
No I wont give up now, not just yet I have to stay and stand this ground
Do you know how much I miss you do you know that I have cried?
Do you know that there are times when I cry myself to sleep at night
I woke up on that very morning expecting you to call
To tell me "Mija Happy Birthday" but I never got the call
That day I had no birthday wishes my wish had already came true 
Just knowning you were up in heaven with Azriel there with you 
Yes my eyes are crying and the tears are streaming down but inside my heart and soul are 
happy that you finally have you crown
So please do me a favor; ask god to ease my pain
And heal my heart inside me so the happiness remains 
Tell my baby brother that I will see him soon 
 When I go up to heaven to be with both of you
