A boy writes a letter to his grandfather, asking him to share the rich culture and values that he grew up with.
A Letter To My Grandfather
© Sandra I. Sandoval
I need your culture to survive.
This environment confuses me.
I feel a deep hallow in my soul;
I'm losing my language and my identity.
Teach me your games and songs;
Tell me your stories and legends.
I need your valuable heritage rich with values.
Explain to me the Mexican sayings;
Dance with me 'El Jarabe Tapatio';
Let's sing together 'Cielito Lindo!'
Open your wardrobe (armoire)
I want to dress like a true Mexican Charro!
Give me with your heritage, your culture.
Show me your experiences,
When you were a kid and use to play
With the spinning top and the colorful marbles.
Take my hand.
Don't let me grow without identity,
Without your culture,
