Dearest Child

Save a rose for your mother, dearest child of mine; save one for me when I too die. Know not a day can possibly go by Without a thought of her: sweet and unbridled. She’s forever free now, dearest child of mine; you will be free when I too die. Think on our love, ‘tis thine, from she and I, Who bore your life for you, our dearest child. You are the hope of your parents’ short lives; You no longer need us, so: achieve, achieve! Stand for yourself, live with your own two feet, Explore, travel, learn, be someone who thrives, Find the joy of life, it'll always be there, so: believe, believe!
