Reaching for the door knob over my head,
I wanted to wear overalls like yours
Instead of dresses with flowers.
Listening; Careful, understand who you are.
Planting baby shoots in the field behind the house
We saved a baby shrew from the cats.
You helped me, smiling;
Even though I’d never heard ‘To A Mouse’.
It is said that love is great; understanding is better.
Even when I thought I knew the right path
And inevitably I didn’t have a clue,
I still heard: You are you, you won’t fail if you try.
Now there are no red overalls and radiator bleeds,
But the words that you spoke forever live with me.
