    El Hombre Que Mas Te Amo
    “Β‘EscΓΊchame hijo!”
    De tanto andar por la vida
    Hijo de mi corazΓ³n
    Me estΓ‘n pesando los aΓ±os
    El cuerpo se me cansΓ³
    Tal vez se acerca el momento
    Que habrΓ© de decirte adiΓ³s
    Cuando ya no estΓ© contigo
    Quien tus mejillas beso
    El que a veces te abrazaba
    Y a veces te regaΓ±o
    Recuerda que fue tu padre,
    El hombre que mΓ‘s te amo
    Si un dΓ­a recuerdas al viejo
    Que se preocupΓ³ por ti
    Si de Γ©l quisieras un beso
    Y ya no me encuentro aquΓ­,
    A tu madre pΓ­dele uno
    De tantos que yo le di
    “AllΓ‘ en tu mΓ‘s tierna infancia
    Yo en mis brazos te arrulle
    Cuando a la tumba me lleves en tu hombro hijo
    Esa vez vas a pagarme con una
    Las mil que yo te cargue”
    Mira por dΓ³nde caminas,
    Que no resbale tu pie
    Procura seguir mis pasos
    DΓ³nde firme camine
    Y evita topar con piedras,
    Con las que yo tropecΓ©
    Cuando extraΓ±es a tu padre
    Que al cielo se fue con Dios
    Si quisieras abrazarlo
    O demostrarle tu amor
    Los besos que des a tu hijo
    AllΓ‘ los recibo yo
    Si un dΓ­a recuerdas al viejo
    Que se preocupΓ³ por ti
    Si de el quisieras un beso
    Y ya no me encuentro aquΓ­
    A tu madre pΓ­dele uno
    De tantos que yo le di

  26. Q: What will you miss most about Oscar?

    A: In the morning of march of 2020 , on Saturday when my dad went to work, pop’s would be there. I would always ask “grandpa can you make me some egg’s please “. Pop’s would say of course Joeryan.
    Me and my pop’s would be eating egg’s on the table. A few hours after we ate some egg’s pop’s would make me some pudding and me and my pop’s would be there on the kitchen counter making the pudding. After he was done I would love to eat the pudding.That is my favorite memory and what I am gunna miss about my pop’s. I love you grandpa/pop’s.
