Across a river or wall
I remember you
A border, deep or tall
I remember your lessons too
You taught me to smile
Even through the pain
You showed me life was worthwhile
Even if we cry in the rain
We lost people we love
To you a husband and a son to you
We both know they see us from above
To me a grandfather and a father before I grew
Across either river you are all too far
Yet in my heart you always are
Sammy Thomas was born and raised in Brownsville going across the border back and forth across the border visiting his grandma that gave him some of his core values. Going to Texas Southmost College and having a job makes it harder to visit his family across the border as often but strives to make her proud while chasing his dreams to be a Music Educator while not forgetting his roots.
