How I shall miss my Granddaughter; I’ll never forget your smile;
Or how I held you close to me for such a little while
Too delicate to endure that world, too sheltered from it all
I should have been there to protect you and prevent your fatal fall
I observe a boy who’s confused and he has a troubled mind
Trying to put together the puzzle of pieces you left behind
Tears flow down his sore cheeks, as I watch him from his bed
He is trying to come to terms with the fact that you are dead.
Don’t worry my dear, he has plenty of shoulders to cry on;
Because of you Cordelia; he now has friends he can rely on.
He’ll keep maturing in his ways as far as he can,
For Nikolai Capri has changed from a boy to a man.
