On the way home after school Lucy 5 said.
“Guess what. There is a daughter father dance
coming up for daughters and fathers (pause) and papas. “
“I can’t dance. ” said the papa.
“That is ok. Just follow me.” Said the granddaughter.

I take her in my arms
Twirl around.
It won’t be long and
there will be a time
when all I can twirl
Is the memories in my mind.
Until that time
All the aches and pains will not
Stop me.
