I Give You The World by PhoenixArt

Currently unavailable for purchase



I give you the world

I could give you stars
but they sparkle in your eyes
I could give you sunshine
but it’s there in your hair
I could give you a mountain
but your heart is bigger
I could give you the sky
but your spirit flies free
I could give you riches
but YOU are the gold

I will give you knowledge
so that you will grow strong
I will give you laughter and tears
so that you may know life
I will give you strength
so that you can run free
I will hold your hand
I will let you go
And I will love you, always.

The other day I had a little fright that concerned my girls and I’m still thanking my lucky stars that they’re ok. I made this piece (manipulation accompanied by poetry) as an homage of sorts.

I made the pic for all of you… Vicki, Sarah, Loren and my little granddaughter Ella.
I love you guys so much!

The poetry is especially for Sarah, who celebrated her 18th birthday on July 8 2010.
I wanted to give you so much when you were growing that I couldn’t… and much of the time I felt bad about that. But I think I managed to give you just the right amount of all the important things, after all. When I look at you now, I feel good. I’m so proud of who you are, and of everything you’ve learnt and achieved. I hope you can use the words of this poem when thinking of your own beautiful daughter. Happy adulthood, My Baby. I love you
