You have come to a bump in the road,
To a place far away, a place far from Abode.
We love to see your fears at bay
To walk the long beach with you
To pick apples from the tall trees
These would be more than a dream come true
Though at this time we cannot be
So instead, we shall remain by your side
We will be the legs to feel the dirt beneath your soles
Your wings so you can feel beyond the blue sky
We will be the wind to blow you along as you soar
We love you Pop Pop.
~ Hailey and Ally
