Her Hero

She took her first breath, he was right there.
He was her first friend, who taught her what love really was.
She struggled to speak, he helped her learn a language that was exclusively theirs.
A language she would forever cherish.
Held her hand and took her around.
He was her partner in crime.
A protector when she needed.
He was afraid to hold her, but he did anyway.
She always knew he would never let her fall.
He watched her grow from a crawling infant to a mischievous child.
They were closer than ever.
He was still her best friend.
He was still her partner in crime.

He was her hero. Her grandfather.
They still had their language. She always held him close.
She took her first breath, he was right there.
He took his last, she was right there with a broken heart.
