Wherever You Are: My Love Will Find You....

This was a book that I bought for Skylar for her third birthday. I got so choked up, I couldn't finish reading it. 

I wanted you more

than you ever will know,

so I sent love to follow

wherever you go.

It's high as you wish it. It's quick as an elf.

You'll never outgrow it... it stretches itself!

So Climb any mountain...

climb up to the sky!

My love will find you.

My love can fly!

Make a big splash! Go out on a limb!

My love will find you.  My love can swim!

It never gets lost, never fades, never ends...

if you're working...

or playing...

or sitting with friends.

You can dance 'til you're dizzy...

paint til you're blue...

There's no place, not one, that my love can't find you.

And if someday you're lonely,

or someday you're sad,

or you strike out at baseball,

or think you've been bad...

Just lift up your face, feel the wind in your hair.

That's me, my sweet baby, my love is right there.

In the green of the grass... in the smell of 

the sea.. in the clouds floating by...

at the top of a tree... in the sound

crickets make at the end of the day...

You are loved. You are loved. You are

loved, they all say

My love is so high, and so wide and

so deep, it's always right there, even

when you're asleep.

So hold your head high

and don't be afraid

to march to the front

of your own parade.

If you're still my small babe

or you're all the way grown,

my promise to you

is you're never alone

You are my angel, my darling,

my star... and my love will find you,

wherever you are. 

You are loved.
