Letter to my Grandfather ❤️

in life •  9 months ago

Hey Koro.

I miss you so much everyday but today in particular was a bit harder.

I walked past this little old man after work today and he looked so much like you.

So much so, I was taken aback and had to do a double take.

He was sitting on a park bench so patiently waiting.

What for, I wouldnt know but I hoped he was happy.

I carried on walking as a smile grew over my face.

And then that smile faded and tears started to form.

I kept stopping and looking back at the little old man because to me, It felt like you were here.

I paused in my tracks for a minute and thought about going to ask if I could hug the little old man.

I contemplated in my head though because I’m just a stranger to the little old man.

I didnt want to scare him or make him frightened.

I just wanted to hug you.

I decided to give it a go and make the walk back toward the little old man in hopes that he would help me out.

As I started getting closer I noticed I couldn't see the little old man’s head over the ledge anymore.

I started to worry about the little old man and hoped he was safe and ok.

And then I saw the little old man.

He was hopping into a little grey car with a little old lady.

It was such a bitter sweet moment.

I was disappointed because I couldnt give you a hug but I was happy he was going home with his wife.

I miss you so much Koro, but today its little harder.

I love you ❤️
