He’d make clocks out of cardboard and teach me how to read time despite the fact that I hated it.
He’d try to make me read books, although I hated even this.
He’d have those long, life inspiring talks, but I would hate them too.
He’d give me advices, but I never paid attention to him.
He’d talk about history, try to test my knowledge and that was the worst time to me.
He’d try to make me like what he did, but to me it was like Hell on Earth.
He’d try to get close to me, but every time I’d see him, I’d avoid him.
He tried.. he tried so hard to get close to me, to talk to me, but I saw him as a boring person. I thought he’d keep talking and talking about useless stuff, just because he was my grandfather.. because he was old.
What I didn’t know was that he knew what he was talking about. What I didn’t know was the he had more experience than me. What I didn’t know was that he loved me.

What I hope is that one day he will forgive me..dn’t know is that I will walk the same path he did. I didn’t know many things, but I could say that now I know a lot..
I miss my grandfather a lot.. and I regret not sitting down with him, talking, spending more time with him. I regret it from deep inside of my heart and I would do anything to go back in time and make up for the time lost.
That’s why, take my advice. Spend time with the ones you love because you never know when they will be gone.. forever.
