Before my eyes you´ve grown each day .
So much accomplished along the way
But it seems like just yesterday here in my arms
I held you and marveled at all of your charms.
Rocking you gently to sleep each night
So safe and warm, holding on so tight
Like a little angel you looked as you slept
Engrained in my heart the picture is kept.
Each new task you mastered was such a big thrill
As I recollect back, I remember them still I would make funny faces to get you to smile
And we´d laugh and we´d play for such a long while.
In no time at all you were toddling around In a world where new treasures all over abound
Such fun times we´d shared through those carefree years Cherished moments of smiles and laughter and tears.
There were balls and sandcastles, pet bugs and cars Planes, hideouts, tree-climbing, wishing on stars And each precious thing that you´d say and do
Was recorded forever in my heart to hold true.
We were dreaming up stories of make-believe lands.
Through all your endeavors I cheered by your side,
Through trials and triumphs my faith never died
And I realized my prayers had been answered above
For to my life, son, you have brought so much love.
Looking back there are so many times I stood proud
With wonderful memories my heart is endowed
Watching you grow has brought me such joy But forever you´ll be just my little boy.|
