"Everyone falls down champions get back up!"

I will never forget the way you watched me grow
I was part of the jungle in your house
That bloomed with flowers for all

From diapers to potty training
You were there for it all
A second mom I could say

Never once did you say take this path
Only when I crossed the road

I remember when I didn't get along with others
And had to sit in timeout
For my punishment

I miss your huge jungle gym
I miss the arts and crafts
I miss the Red Wing pool
I miss McDonald’s we behaved

But now I am jealous
I am not young anymore
I want to play in your front lawn again
But I have grown

Now that there is a slide inside
Makes me even more jealous

I wanted to say thanks for all that you’ve done for me
For leading me to do good
And punishing me when I’ve done wrong

Thanks for watching me play
And supporting me

I am a flower
That you helped grow in the jungle
Of your home

It is a gift to my old daycare lady. Since it is Christmas season I wrote a gift poem.
