Well we know it's hard to believe
that just a few years ago we were naive.
You told us we would grow up
and we asked you to remember us while we were small.
You taught and shaped who we are
though we were only three feet tall.
We learned about things that have taken us far
including how to get up after we fall.
We heard that where your treasure is
that's where your heart will be.
Now we know a good deal about hearts and things
and what treasuring really means.
Well we've gone and made great fingerprints
but as we promised, not on walls
and we've touched those around us
as we've become six feet tall.
Today we're all grown up
and we remember you who taught uswhile we were small.
