Today I thought about your smile,
I haven’t seen it in a while,
When I remember your warm embrace,
It takes me back to a happy place.
As I watch my children grow,
My hearts is sometimes full of woe,
I’m sure your watching from above,
I know that they will feel your love.
But how I wish you could sit with me,
And natter over a cup of tea,
I’d tell you all my worries and fears,
And you would smile and wipe my tears.
I can only hope I’m doing it right,
As I tuck them up for the night,
I give them teddy and warm advice,
I tell them be good and treat others nice.
One day they’ll leave and fly the nest,
I know that I will have tried my best,
I hope that I will make you proud,
As you look down from your fluffy cloud.
