When first I held you in my arms
My sweetest child so full of charm
You stole my heart and my soul too
Like no one person e’er could do
I never thought that life would be
Full of this joy you’ve brought to me.
In all the years you did not fail
Or steal the wind out of my sail
We’ve weathered every sort of storm
And kept our lives about the norm
Tis tragic that you couldn’t stay
Wherein at last my heart will lay !
