"We Can See Ghosts (una despedida a mi tio)"

We can see ghosts
And talk to the dead in our dreams
We see events with our eyes closed
And learn of upcoming nows

We can also feel someone else’s pain
And receive messages using no sight or sound
We deny these cuentos out of fear
Yet, accept them when they happen to us

It scares me to know that we have family reunions in the dark
And there are conversations taking place around me
That my tia sits at the foot of the bed while I sleep
That we are loved by spirits

It scares me so much that I do not wish this on anyone else
Yet, I cannot help but take pride
That we can see ghosts
And talk to the dead in our dreams

RIP Tio Memo
