Grandpa, Blame Me

We would always argue,
But we worked it out.
I couldn't stay mad at you,
Not even now.
You gave me things I didn't deserve,
Things I didn't need.
And when I yelled at you with such nerve,
It was right for you to scream.
I wasn't there to give you assistance,
I should've came home that night.
I was within walking distance,
But I thought you'd be all right.
Feeling guilty,
I know it's my fault, don't argue.
Can't change me,
How will I possibly make it through?
Grandpa,
I'm sorry.
I couldn't save ya,
Blame me.
I would've stayed with you,
If I had known.
I apologize for the pain you went through,
In the blink of an eye I would've came home.
Grandpa,
I'm sorry.
This apology, I owe ya,
You have all the right to blame me.
This could've been prevented,
I hate myself.
Gotta deal with it,
'Cause you're somewhere else.
I made the worst mistake,
How will I survive?
Give and take,
You're gone and I'm still alive.
I'm left here,
Wanna run away.
Haven't shed a tear,
I'm lost for words to say.
Grandpa,
I'm sorry.
I couldn't save ya,
Blame me.
I would've stayed with you,
If I had known.
I apologize for the pain you went through,
In the blink of an eye I would've came home.
Grandpa,
I'm sorry.
This apology, I owe ya,
You have all the right to blame me.
Wish I could have a redo,
Just this time.
To have one more moment with you,
And speak what's on my mind.
But the world doesn't work that way,
I wish it would.
'Cause then I could say,
All the words I conceal inside my hood.
I miss you,
It's hard to believe.
But it's just the truth,
Trust me.
I know I should've came home,
But I stayed out late.
You shouldn't of had to do hard labor alone,
'Cause now I'm suffering because of your fate!
Grandpa,
I'm sorry.
I couldn't save ya,
Blame me.
I would've stayed with you,
If I had known.
I apologize for the pain you went through,
In the blink of an eye I would've came home.
Grandpa,
I'm sorry.
This apology, I owe ya,
You have all the right to blame me.
It's my fault, blame me,
Grandpa, I'm sorry...

I know he has. We never saw straight, and we argued continuously, but when we shared the perception, we got along quite well. Thank you! It means a lot to me tbhat you read my work. Probably not, but I will always blame myself for his passing. It's something that will not leave my mind.
