I see you when I close my eyes,
Or with my eyes open wide,
Whether I am awake or asleep,
When I laugh or when I weep.
I see you in a baby’s smile,
And in the laughter of a child,
When watching boys play and run,
With sticks and toys having fun.
I see you in my dreams at night,
And with the early morning light,
In a lovely pale blue sky,
Watching clouds floating by.
I see you in the twinkling stars,
Gazing upward from afar,
When I look at your apple trees,
And in the gentle morning breeze.
I see you in every change of season,
Or for no specific reason,
In a song that will play,
You are with me every day.
I see you in funny stories,
Crazy movies and artistic glory,
When visiting with your friends,
Everything reminds me of you again.
I see you with all the love I have to give,
Your body died but you still live,
My dearest son and dream come true,
I see you.
