It was holiday time for us this week,
My little son was filled with excitement and joy,
So much to experience and look forward to,
A big adventure for my little boy.
He'd been saving all his money,
To buy himself some nice things,
And he surprised the hell out of me,
Wanting to buy Mummy a necklace or a ring.
I said how much I loved him,
And thanked him for his generosity,
But perhaps he should buy himself some presents first,
And if he has any change left then we'd see.
Dylan bought himself a snow globe,
And a toy fishing set as well,
He felt it was money well spent,
And then poor lamb, his little face fell.
Did he have enough change left,
To buy a little present for me?
He was quite worried about it,
He wanted to share his good fortune with me.
We went into a gift shop,
And he saw what he wanted right away,
A little blue gemstone dolphin,
Would he have enough to pay?
We counted out his money,
He had enough and a little more,
So he proudly bought me my necklace,
From the gift store.
He was so ernest and proud of himself,
Couldn't wait for me to put it on,
I told him how beautiful it was,
And thanked him for being such a thoughtful son.
Twas only a little thing,
This dolphin on a chain,
But with it and all the love that goes with it,
Some beautiful memories remain.
How long after you are gone will ripples remain as evidence that you were cast into the pool?
