I was constantly on chocolatey ferris wheels
And houses full of christmas candy and gifts.
In scarce days, I was the wealthiest of all
Thanks to you Dim-sum and your world of wonder.
The terrible stories to put you to sleep
The imaginary tigers hiding behind bushes
And the poor little lamb that waited
Drenched in the moonlight, the lamb & I
Could not decide the fate that was to be
So we mumbled, fumbled and gulped, thinking.
Looking at you snore, we knew time was running out
Thanks to you Koko, I wrote better stories and fates.
Slavery had long been abolished
But not in the house of the Sibling Sisters
With delicate cotton threads the limbs were bound
To let me crawl all around, if not for you
Dear TimTim, where would I learn to be humble?
All things apart, how would I have known
That it’s the things you love most
That are the toughest to part with.
But they are the ones you must let go
Let them go to the people you love.
It’s only then that you know you have truly given.
Other things are not giving, they are just excess.
But most of all I thank you
I thank you for being that smart kid
Who put together a very complex puzzle
A puzzle called me and made me into a picture
A complete picture that made sense
A picture that is no longer bits and pieces
Lying all over the place, but smart and able
A valuable little picture, worth something.
Thank you DeeDee, now there are no more words.
