Message:  Ok, you know how I can't seem to put words together anymore, but, hey, I tried.

Love ya,
PS: You're going to have to stop being so grumpy when I call you, at five, in the morning. It's bad for the kid.


Alone, tonight, I survey the sky.
I hear the sound, of a plane, flying by.
I can not see it, but I know it is there.
Just like you, Dad, and I have something to share.

If you can see me, just want you to know.
There is a reason, that my face has a glow.
You will soon be, a Grandfather again.
Might be a boy, with your dimpled chin.

Your , "Baby Girl", will soon be a mom.
Emotions are high, no way to stay calm.
Nine months, sounds so very long.
But it gives you time, to write your Grandchild a song.

Oh Daddy, I miss you! Wish you were here.
How can " Happy " and " Sad " both share a tear?
Always the right words, as you held me tight.
A kiss and " I love you ", tucked me in at night.

Yes, alone tonight, feeling happy and sad.
I look to the future, but hold to my Dad.
A soft, gentle, breeze, runs through my hair.
The wind chimes start playing, I know you are there.
