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
