Eyes as blue as the sea
A smile so wide, laughter so sweet
Don’t you know? You mean the world to me!
From a baby I have watched you grow
Into the “Dede” we all know.
God has blessed us with you
This we know, is true.
I do believe that with your birth
The Lord subtracted years of hurt.
You see, my Dear One
Your existence brings our family home–
We all long to see you and smile with delight
So much that your Aunt will drive into the night
Just to see you for a few hours or so…
You are a piece of my heart, don’t you know?
I’ve loved you since before we even met!
