Go climb that tree !

"You cant climb that tree. You’re going to fall !"
Look at the man who is now grown and tall.
You used to run around in Alf under pants 
Sometimes you would turn and do a little dance.
You were so happy and full of life 
though our family was under the knife
You were to young to remember the all of the pain of back then 
I am grateful it was me and not you that remembers back when
You got to keep your precious childhood memories in tact 
You never had to try and rehearse some believable act.
You  made it through it barely unscathed
While the rest of us went on feeling  betrayed
I look at you now and see all you have done 
how proud I am of how far you have come 
You have managed to make it through this all;
So go climb that tree, I promise you wont fall
