I crept towards the stairs

'Cuz I needed a drink

But, you know, who really cares


Then I heard a noise

That could only be Mommy

I nearly tripped on some toys


But, you know, who really cares

I listened very carefully

Then I inched up the stairs


Mommy's sniffle could be heard,

When I went to bed

I had been assured


But now...


I heard Mommy crying

Maybe it's because

Her daddy is slowly dying


So I go back to bed

And dream of

Grandpa angels flying
