Watch Me

For Grandad

You should have seen me smiling,
Standing crying for joy,
As I finally made it to the place
That I wanted to be.

You should have seen me happy
Should have seen me win the prize
As I finally got to the top,
Where I wanted to be.

Instead, you cannot watch me
'Cause you're far away.
And though I've made it to the top,
Where I wanted to be.

It's not the same if you can't watch me
Not the same if you're not there.
And without you the prize is nothing
Though I'm who I wanted to be.

The End
