Grandpa smiles and nods his head

He knew you’d be like this

Remembers you jumped off his lap

Would not accept his kiss


He sees you now, a full-grown man

So proud of who you are

He waits until you’ll meet again

Embrace amongst the stars


Rover plays with his new toy

The grass a perfect green

His leg has healed, his strength returned

As youthful as he’s been


He looks and sees your tears run down

Be with you if he could

He waits until you’ll play again

And things be as they should


Your lifelong partner danced with you

Through good times and the bad

She knows you now must walk alone

It hurts her that you’re sad


She relives memories you both made

As she watches from above

She waits until you’ll dance again

Defined eternal love


They all are waiting it seems so long

They don’t want us to rush

We’ll reunite when meant to be

Live for them we must

The maze looms before me yet again

I’ve been here times before

Start going left, or just go right

This maze has been a chore


Something’s pulling me this time

A force from far away

I think I’ll let it lead me now

A different choice today


A subtle nudge that makes me think

It also makes me smile

I’m halfway through the maze by now

That didn’t take a while


Halfway more of twists and turns

New choices feeling right

For once I might complete the maze

And finally see the light


The maze has been a chore for me

But why I’d never know

Can’t wait to see the second half

And where this maze might go

Another day I’ll follow you

You’ll tell me where to go

I have no words to challenge you

My actions, hard to show


I feel that you are worried

I watch your every move

Don’t think it’s ever lost on me

You’ve nothing more to prove


You wonder if you matter

I’d tell you if I could

You wonder if I’m happy

My life is very good

You wonder what I’m thinking

Without words, it’s hard to show

You wonder if I know your love

Believe me. Yes, I know


You ask me if I’m doing fine

I truly think I am

You’re still not sure and that’s ok

I know you are my fan


I’ll listen as you guide me through

My life, my week, my day

Even when you let me go

Rest easy, I’m ok


You wonder if you matter

I’d tell you if I could

You wonder if I’m happy

My life is very good

You wonder what I’m thinking

Without words, it’s hard to show

You wonder if I know your love

Believe me Dad. I know
