Grandpa

I was just calling to confirm I'd be working late tomorrow;

that was two hours ago,

and I still haven't moved.

what I was told, didn't make sense.

he's in the hospital.

again.

but, this time I need to come home to see him tomorrow.

why?

yes,

I know; he's weak.

he's 91.

why do I need to come home to see him tomorrow?

easter is sunday and we will take him to church.

he will be there, praying for our hell raising family.

I know we all worry him,

but I like to think he wouldn't have it any other way.

who'd want a boring family anyway.

if he's not here, who is going to keep us together?

why do I need to come home to see him tomorrow?

it's almost memorial day.

we will be taking him to the lake;

and i'll bet you anything he'll say,

"jiminey crickets, I've never seen this much traffic."

and he's probably right,

the traffic is horrible nowadays.

why do I need to come home to see him tomorrow?

who is going to tell people i've passed all my tests,

when I still have more.

who is going to tell me I'm beautiful,

when I know that I am not.

who is going to be my example of a real man,

when the world is full of boys.

who is going to love us all unconditionally,

when we are not worthy.

why do I need to come home to see him tomorrow?

where is he going?

I understand other people's grandpas pass away,

it's just a way of life.

but not mine;

not my Poppi.

so,

I'm sorry,

but,

again,

why do I need to come home to see him tomorrow?
