Your smile I keep on file.

As today progressed, and the more i got the urge to burst into tears, i decided early on that i needed to be surrounded by the one’s i really love in order to pick myself up out of this rut.
while many of my loved ones span across this large world, i am blessed to have a few right here in town.
so naturally, when in a slump, needing a comedian/magician/dragon-fighter/actor/musician… who else to turn to but nathan. there is
not one soul who will not smile just at the site of this kid’s contagious giggles…

seeing as
how nathan is the oldest of my nephews and nieces, we share a particularly close bond.


So naive, it helps me to breathe
Your smile I keep on file
You tickle me pink.
I love the way you think
So when I’m feeling low I know
I’m your greatest fan



Little man I’m endlessly proud of you

In such a short time span
You’ve filled my heart with joy
As I grow older, you grow wiser
Watching my mistakes
Memorize where I’ve gone wrong

If they fall way
I’ll stay with you
But do as I say and not as do
Trust me and you’ll see
All I want is what is best for you



Little man your head is full of dreams
If only I could spend one day touring
Your imagination
If I live longer you’ll grow faster
At recognizing the traps that cause
Me such frustration


If they fall way
I’ll stay with you
But do as I say and not as I do
trust me and you’ll see
All I want is what is best for you



So naive, it helps me to breathe
Your smile I keep on file
You tickle me pink.
I love the way you think
So when I’m feeling low I know
I’m your greatest fan
