Fall In New Mexico

We are going to do it,
Just me and Sam,
And Grizzy’s ashes.

We will make it
To that mountain pass,
Between Colorado
And New Mexico,

And we will stand there,
In the fresh, fall,
Mountain Air,
And we will breathe it,
We will take it all in,
As if it is the first breath
We have ever taken,

We will witness the golden aspens
And the crisp air
Will make our eyes water
And we will cry
With joy and sadness

We will remember
How the smell of sage
Excited Grizz
Because he knew
We were home

And I will ask Grizzy
To forgive me,
For not making it back here,
Before he left us

Yes, I will hold him
In the urn,
And I will tell him
How sorry I am,
And I know Sam
Will understand

We will relive the memories
Of the joy
Of Grizzy

And I know that
Grizzy will know
That we finally
Made it
