    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.

    Thanks RICH. My only real sorrow
    is that he didn't have the chance
    to touch more lives before his passing.
    I just feel so blessed to have known him
    and I wish I could share that feeling with
    everyone.
