My dearest boy what can I say
Just how I miss you every day
Your happy laugh, your smiling face
Uneven jog and rapid pace.
Your energy and constant chat
A lot of this, a bit of that,
In all those years I never knew
A single thing you could not do.
Your interest in those about
Made you a student most devout
I never saw you fall apart
So sure of mind and strong of heart !
