I like the way you walk beside me
While we work and laugh and play
My friend who never will forget me
Not even when I’m old and gray.
I love the way you think and ponder
The way you watch carefully
Learning what e’er you can discover
So you can do it perfectly.
No matter what you set your mind to
I’ve no doubt that you’ll succeed
For observation is your best tool
You wield it with an expertise!
So count me in on your adventures,
Your stories, paintings and songs
My admiration just keeps growing
For you, sweet girl—my own dear Song!
