Otis

you are a wonder Child

who makes all my worries forgotten
a wonder Child
who reminds me that all the world’s not rotten
you bring with you the joy of Laughter and forgetting

and leave me with a fondness for reminiscing

to hear your voice alone is sweeter than all the music of Heaven

to see you smile but once is indeed my soul’s protection

a day, a week, a month apart but still present in my heart
I awake each day and sleep each night content that we’re apart
because I know you love me
and that I’ve found that purest love for which my whole life was spent in search

because I know you love me

I can be at peace; that into my life can come no hurt

you may be eight and like to fart and punch and burp

but I see in store for you a future full of wonders, hope, and worth.
