This is from my kids’ Pre-K rhymes CD. It never fails to bring a lump in my throat every time I hear it.
I LOVE YOU, YOUR BUTTON NOSE
YOUR EYES,YOUR EARS, YOUR KNEES, YOUR TOES
I LOVE YOU UP TO THE SKY
PAST THE MOON AND STARS SO HIGH.
IF YOU FEEL ALONE AND SCARED
ALWAYS KNOW THAT I WILL BE THERE
JUST LIKE ONE AND ONE MAKES TWO,
YOU LOVE ME AND I LOVE YOU!
I LOVE YOU IN EVERY WAY
ALL YOU DO AND ALL YOU SAY
MY LOVE FOR YOU WILL ALWAYS BE
DEEPER THAN THE DEEP BLUE SEA
EVEN IF YOU ARE SAD OR BLUE
IT’S OKAY BECAUSE I LOVE YOU
JUST LIKE ONE AND ONE MAKES TWO
YOU LOVE ME AND I LOVE YOU
On infants birthday, I put up this poem and pasted around the poem, 12 pictures of toddler and infant (one picture taken every month since infant was born) hugging one another. It means a lot to me that they grow up to be good friends!
