grandpa is missing
having his granddaughter always about
now that his son’s family
have once again moved out

of course, I’m happy
that they now have a home of their own
and they didn’t move out
just to make grandpa feel all alone

they just want to have some space
and to spread their wings
and for them to stand on their own
is the most natural of things

I guess I can get used
to having some peace and quiet now
and I’m sure I’ll be okay
although I’m not sure exactly how
