Don’t forget

Elephant in womb by Dan Lacy

The time she takes is nothing to regret
Each moment of her life is worth a year
You know that happiness is always near
And even tiny babies don’t forget
      She is your stake on nature’s greatest bet
      Your life can never be the same again
      The effort though is always worth the strain
      And even tiny babies don’t forget
The two of you may live a strange duet
I know the greatest feelings that I’ve had
Are when a child has whispered “thank-you” Dad
And even tiny babies don’t forget
      The time she takes is nothing to regret
      And even tiny babies don’t forget
