When I was young

I kept walking to live long

After meals

Along the lake

Holding grandpa’s hands

Feeling the calluses and wrinkles

 

Again and again

Listening to old stories

Of loved ones 

Lived together

Happily ever after

 

When I grew up

I kept walking 

For grandpa to live long

Long enough to see me

With the one I love

And 

Live 

Together

Happily 

Ever 

After
