Hi all for a long time now, a friend of mine in Bootle has read the posts but still has not joined. She has asked me to post something to her but what she hasn't realized, is that she will have to join to copy it. Anyway here it is. This is put on her daughters 50th Birthday card.
I Remember. I remember how I held you, As you thought that you could walk. I remember how I listened As you tried so hard to talk. I remember how I ran along As you learned to ride a bike. I remember how i filled with pride As you sang and held the mike. I remember how I cried that day. As you skipped off into school. I remember holding out my arms As you jumped into the pool. I remember how you looked so sad As you brought home your report. I remember how you blushed and sighed As they chose you for that sport. I remember how you grew so fast As i measured you on the wall. I remember turning that long rope. As you skipped and bounced that ball. I remember the day you didn't come home As a boy was taking you out. I remember thinking time to let go As I heard you giggle and shout. I remember the happy and sad times As you worked to reach your goal. I remember to Thank God every day. As old age is taking it's toll.
