I used to be your best friend

You’d wait eagerly at the door a half hour before I got home

Hearing my footsteps was enough to brighten your mood

And when I swept you up in a hug I could feel the warmth and sincerity of your love

…now you’re all grown up.

You’ve achieved more than I could ever dream of

I guess I’m irrelevant 

I’m sorry I can’t pick you up anymore

And that my conversations with you no longer make your day

You’re still growing up but I seem to have slowed down

I need you to know that I have always, and will always, love you no matter what.

It’s the last and only thing I have to offer

…I hope it’s not too little for you

Please let it not be too little for you
