Kites, toys, birds, bees, flowers and trees
Inquisitive about these things you see.
Natural childhood curiosities
Nurtured by the answers you receive.
You are part of a close knit family,
Which for you is very good.
You’ll always know you’re loved, and have responsibility,
As all growing children should.
I wish we lived closer together,
So I could see you frequently.
But since we’re hundred of miles apart,
Frequent visits just cannot be.
Just always remember I love you,
And you’re often in my thoughts.
And when I’m thinking of you,
My love, over the miles does cross.
