Forever Young

**This is just a parent's expression to his child.**

Birthdays come and birthdays go,
Children grow young and parents old.
So shall we and so shall you.
So dear child,
When you went to school,
I enjoyed a game of pool.
When you with your friends make merry,
I enjoy a ride of ferry.
With your partner when you’ll romance,
I’ll also enjoy a rain dance!
When you’ll teach your child to write,
I’ll teach him how to fly a kite!
However old I may be,
Existence of my inner child shall never cease.
In you I’ve found myself afresh,
You’ve brought in my life a fresh breeze!
