Joy to your Mom and Dad.

Obviously for you they’re glad.

Now they won’t be lonely or sad.

And for your sisters too they’re glad.

Together you make a family.

Hearts full of love and very happy.

Angelic with open arms you greet me.

Now that’s a pleasant thing to see.

Jonathan, I love you so very much,

As I hope you already know.

I visit and call as often as I can,

So my love to you I can show.

I wish I didn’t live so far away,

So we could be together a whole lot more.

I could see you and your sisters everyday,

And we’d sit and play on the floor.

I put up the pictures you color for me.

I put them on the refrigerator door.

They are there for all others to see,

Until you give me more.

When I visit you, I go with you to Sunday School,

Where many Bible Stories you hear,

Where you learn about the Golden Rule,

And God’s love for everybody everywhere.
