I want to be like you

In your life so far, you’ve taught us a whole lot To be open with our mind and give it our best shot When I’m your ripe old age, I want to be like you

In your life so far, you’ve taught us a whole lot

To be open with our mind and give it our best shot

When I’m your ripe old age, I want to be like you

Grateful for the life you have, with a sense of humour too

 

You’re a father and grandfather and turned into a great

Not sure how all that happened, it must’ve been your fate

You dealt with every issue, with your head held up high

Respected by your peers, something money just can’t buy

 

Quiet at most times, it seems that you’re not there

At other times you’re lively, especially on a dare

Your game is not quite over; you’re hoping there is more

Not so sure who’s winning, you really don’t keep score

 

But when you focus on an issue, we’d better step aside

For you might be old and slower, but still have lots of pride

And when that pride takes over, you’re bound to have your way

You know so many forceful words, we’re afraid of what you’ll say

 

Don Hamaliuk, St. Albert
