My darling Richard,
If ever there is tomorrow when we’re not together,
There’s something you must remember;
You’re braver than you believe,
And stronger than you seem,
And smarter than you think.
But the most important thing is even if we’re apart,
I’ll always be with you.
There’s a special kind of feeling
When I think about you, Dad
It’s a pleasure to remember
All the happy times we’ve had.
There’s a special kind of caring
That is meant for you alone
There’s a place somewhere
Within my heart
That only you can own.
