While lying on a fishing boat
I look to the heavens
I can see my life all mapped out for me.
I want to learn all I can
And to travel the world over,
To sit in a field and wish on a four leaf clover...
I want a dog I can name Rover
The simple things in life for me are good
A brother a sister or two,
And a friend I hold very dear to me.
I have grown up in a strange place and all with my Mom and Dad, grandma and grandpa. They are very special to me.
My other grandma and grandpa live very far from here,
We talk on the phone and even visit a time or two.
I am growing up now
The hardest part of life is yet to come.
I welcome the challenges
I love a good game.
I will make myself proud for my parents as well
Time for me to smile and look around and see what a wonderful life awaits me.
