As your daughter I wonder

I wonder what you’ve learned

So I can learn what you learn

So I can be as serious as you are

And I’m trying really hard

To be big and tough

But growing up is rough.

I want to be like you more

So I can look one in the eyes

Who isn’t saying what they should be

So they will tell me.

You’ve had a long adventure, everyday a brand new

And I have too

But not as many yet

We’ve shared long car rides to school, work, and home

So many sentences in the air to roam

And yet many more to come

Because every day is a new adventure

And you never end up in the literal same place

Because no snowflake is the same as another

So they say

So no place is the same.

Loyd, Papa, Stepdad, dad.

Merry Christmas
