This is a tribute to my great-grandfather. The one real man in my life. Daddy, I miss you. I don't know what to do. It seems like only yesterday that you passed away, but in reality it's be seven long years with no one to ease my fears I'm trying my best to maintain, but time hasn't healed my pain. I wish you were still here holding me near, sharing your wisdom and knowledge, guiding me through college, telling me of my history, the black and the Cherokee. I miss the way we'd talk for awhile, and then you'd sit back and smile telling me stories of when you were a kid and all the crazy things you did. I know you're probably sitting on a cloud looking down and feeling so proud of all the great things we've done, and how we've come together as one to keep this family going strong. So I know I maybe wrong when I say I just want one more day. I just wish for one more moment of all the time we spent together.
