Myles of Smiles

In drawing you found peace
Sitting on the floor, in the middle of your party
Away from the world
In swimming you found solace
Jumping off the rocks, in the middle of the night
Away from the world
The memories safe in my memory box

Your Dad would cook you steak
Standing at the grill, using sticks and leaves to cook with
Together in your world
Your sister and your brother
Natalie and Daniel, you would race around the bike track
Together in your world
The memories safe in my memory box

I’ll watch you fly, my butterfly
High over the lake where I see the moon
Moms is always with you
Myles, my secret keeper, my guy.

Mamá and Papá
You’d listen to the stories, ‘bout the Navy and the war
Together you were laughing
Maya and her onesie
Forever dad and daughter, the memories always precious
Together you will fly
The memories safe in my memory box

I’ll watch you fly, my butterfly
High over the lake where I see the moon
Moms is always with you
Myles, my secret keeper, my guy.

We said goodbye and the butterfly came.
Your sketchbook fell open at the page.
Travel plans and your first and last hats
Safe in my memory box

I’ll watch you fly, my butterfly
High over the lake where I see the moon
Moms is always with you
Myles, my secret keeper, my guy.

I stayed to tell your story
Keep sending me the signs.
