I wrote this poem thinking of my paternal grandfather who died when my father was 7 years old. He was a poet, and when I write I think of him. 

Stay and Smile

He speaks through the base of my neck, 

Where the voice box rests. 

Hello boys, I have not forgotten you. 

We wait. All of us who you know are here. 

We stay and smile. 

Your life means a lot to you. 



More for you
