Oh to be young again

Those were the days

Destroying the furniture 

And running all day.

Having more energy

Than people could keep up

And for many years

Acting like a pup.

I’m older now

And I rarely run

But when my family needs me

I get the job done.

Now here you are

With all your youth

Melting hearts with your cuteness 

And working that last baby tooth.

I’ll show you things, kid

For when I’m not around

And I can see in your eyes

You won’t let me down.
