It was the most comfortable bed for me,
When he held me in his strong arms for the first time.
It was the most amusing gallop I could ever have,
When he carried me onto his back for the first time.
It was the most solicitous amble I could ever go on,
When he clutched my index finger for the first time.
It was the most delightful day of my life,
When he took me to my school for the first time.
Today, I can see him as the most delighted person,
When he’s watching me walk through the crowd.
I can feel that solace in his heart,
When he is seeing me achieve that award.
I can see his chest go wide in proud,
When he’s hearing that applaud he knew I’ll earn.
