Total forever

Some days I can’t bear how much I miss you
The tough love you displayed
The hugs and kisses
The yells that had my young mind in disarray
The blood and bruised knuckles full of pain
The empty bottles and wine and
empty cans could never make it go away
You smiled when you left and said it had to happen this way
I know you are with me everyday it’s just nights like this I wish you could have stayed

This Poems Story

My Uncle Alfred passed away from liver cancer that had spread through his body. He was always a very firm man. Didn’t open much rarely did he love. He didn’t like children or guests over but whenever I was around he would smile at me and talk, and that for me was the world. Before he passed I told him of my goals and ambitions he would tell me everyday that I need to make it big so that I can get out of Los Angeles . He kept me off the path of trouble because he had done his fair share (the image above is my mother and aunt with uncle when they took me to visit him in prison). He passed before I could make it home and show him that I had become a US Marine. Life has a weird way of handling things. Everyone has there faults in this life but one conversation can really make an impact .
