What I Would Do For You

I would do just about anything you'd ask,
For you there's nothing I wouldn't do, there's no such task.

I would walk without my shoes to the end of the Earth,
I would give up anything I had to, to teach you self worth.

I would hold your hand every minute of every day,
But I won't because I know you need to find your own way.

I would surely bear the heartache of your first love that's real,
Even though I can't, I will naturally feel as you feel.

I would sell my soul if it would keep you happy forever,
I would give my right arm to keep us forever together.

I would run a hundred miles up-hill in the rain,
Just to guarantee that you will never feel pain.

I would laugh with you even if I was sad,
I will give you a smile even if I'm mad.

I can only accept your mistakes with a grin on my face,
I will guide you in correcting them, but at your own pace.

I will guide you through life, as this world can get quite wild,
Just don't you ever forget that you will always be my child.

I also have cute little daughter who is growing up and very soon will be a gentle lady. I helped her in her first step, I helped her in her first speech, today she is running faster than me, thinking wiser than me, speaking better than me, still, My feeling about her is always that she is a ''kid'' to me and she needs my hand in every step she puts forth, but that's just my ''feel'' she has the ability to move forward without me and my support hereafter. But still she is my ''KID" for ever my ''KID" !!!!!
