I sit and watch you dream in bed,
And I think about your road ahead.
Where will it lead, what will you see,
Who will you meet along your journey.
I think about us, your Dad and me.
Are we all you want us to be?
Do we give you the support you need,
To enable you to succeed?
My thoughts turn to your future career.
Will it take you to lands far from here?
Whatever you do, wherever you are,
Be happy and follow your heart.
Will you find a soul mate to share,
Your hopes and dreams, who for you will care.
To make a home in which to live,
And to start your own family with.
Through all my thoughts, one thing is clear.
We hope your journey is without fear,
That you are happy in all you do,
And that you know that we love you.
