He carried her on his back and walked around the park
She chuckled and laughed her heart out every time he gently hopped.
Pointing at the flock of chirping birds and the scurrying squirrels
She told ‘happily ever after’ stories, which he patiently heard.
Leaning on the picket fence,
They sat, together on the fresh green lawn.
Hand in hand, laughing out loud,
Talking just about everything under the blonde sun;
She whispered into his ears a long list of wishes,
Some were small and some larger than life.
He nodded for everything and giggled on some,
While some put him in deep thought and made him look grim.
She asked for a bottle full of sunshine,
With its lid closed real tight.
Three scoops of the vanilla moon on her plate,
As starter, main course and dessert for dinner that night.
She wanted him to take her around the world
Carrying her on his back.

And sing a lullaby every time he put her to bed.
Build her a castle made of candy sticks and dark chocolate,
Doors made of wafers coated with strawberry cream.
Jelly bean door knobs and caramel flavoured window panes.
And to top it all a roof made from milky white chocolate tiles.

Leaned her head on his shoulder and fell into a deep sleep.

Where she was kept under observation for her Alzheimer’s disease;
