Poppa Jack

Sweet Erin confessed her love for me More love than her real Poppa That was really quite difficult to hear Never really knew her saga Once asked if I could adopt sweet Erin She agreed, with no hesitation So sweet to know she loves me that much But so sad to hear this revelation Her Mommy and Daddy were separated Many years before we met Apparently he was never a good Daddy Erin harbours the anger yet! Such a sweetie, my dear dear Erin Love her to bits and more A daughter I wished I had always had She makes this Poppa's heart soar © Jack Ellison 2013

    This is very nice, Jack. Who is this girl? Is she related to you somehow by blood?

    I adopted Casey, and you can adopt Erin... We're more alike than I thought! Lucky you! Except you don't have a Dragon, of course... Do you want a Dragon? Grandpa Troll may be able to get you one... Wouldn't that be cool... We could swap Dragon stories... But you'd have to ask Cathie first... Dragons can be quite over whelming, some times... More so than 2 college kids... LOL

    So nice to hear from you, my dearest Charmaine! Sweet Erin is a Mom with twins of her own! Sweet that she thinks of me as her adopted Dada but so sad to hear about her real Dad! I love her sooooo much! Love and big big hugs xoxox
