this handsome man right here is my grandpa. he died two years ago today, july 21st, 2015. he was a very important man in my life. he taught me the values of right and wrong, he raised me since i was a baby because neither of my “perfect” parents wanted me.
i can’t explain to anyone how much i love this man and how much i miss him because he was truly an angel on earth. i need his picture to be seen, i need him to be remembered, i need everyone to know that my grandpa is unlike any other. sweet, kind, gentle – and beyond a doubt my inspiration.
i don’t particularly believe in god or think about the logic behind religion, but if this entire thing exists, i know he’s in heaven or paradise or wherever else, watching me, knowing that i spend so much of my time remembering and missing him.
sorry to make this really sad post on my blog, but i have no intention of filtering out the man i love for the sake of tumblr followers.
mr. ali akbar miah, i miss the fucking crap out of you. and i love you and my heart aches for you more and more every single day.
