 From my mind

My Little Pearls


I'll pick you up when you fall down.
Tickle your belly when you sit and frown.
Make you laugh when I act the clown.

I'll tell you a story, sing you a song.
Play with you and your toys all day long.
Paint pictures on paper upon the floor and
When there done hang them on the kitchen door.
When I am tired you shout
ďMore! More! More! ď

We'll go to the beach play in the sand.
Walk by the water's edge hand in hand.
We'll go for a walk, play in the park
And hurry back home before it gets dark.

I'll give you a bath, your supper and when
You're safely snuggled up in your bed,
I'll kiss you goodnight
After the story I've read.

The years have gone by, how they have flown.
You've both grown up and have minds of your own.
You've grown up healthy and grown up strong.
I'm still here for you  the rock to lean on.

I'll run you around in the car
Sometimes near and sometimes far,
Whether it be morning or late at night
As long as you are happy, safe and all right.

You make me happy, you make me sad,
Sometimes angry, sometimes mad.
These things I expect for I am your Dad.
To me you are like two precious pearls
For always and ever my little girls.
