Derek, My Son
Did I tell you enough times how I loved you?
Everything about you makes me smile.
Right now my words might seem too few,
Except I think a thought for every mile
Keeping me away from touching you.
Think of me when you’re feeling lonely:
Hold me in your heart when you feel sad;
Often dwell on happy times with me,
Reading learning books that you had.
Please keep in mind my voice from days gone past:
Evermore our friendship, love will last.
