I've watched you play beside the sea,
Splash in the water and play in the sand,
I've watched you grow from girl to woman,
and I have held your hand.

I have seen you run, jump and skip
With the wind blowing your hair,
I hear your laughter and it brings to mind
How very much I care.

Now when you walk beside the sea
It is another hand you hold.
I hear your laughter once again
Bringing warmth to days of cold.

I gave you roots to anchor you
And wings for you to fly,
I rejoice and wish you happiness
But sometimes sit and sigh.
