As his eyes opened from his light sleep, I welcomed his gaze with a bright smile. My mother and I drove five hours for this moment; that finally, after months of waking up alone, he has someone waiting for him. I watched as his half-opened eyes bloom into light and a curve began to form on his lips, the most uplifting line no man can ever force to existence, for this gem is only earned through time– the smile of my grandfather.
