When you spend your life with someone
You gain a special feeling of respect.
That feeling is what I’ve found in you
And your feelings are something I’ll never neglect.
You’ve been my friend, father, and grandfather,
And you were the happiest part of my childhood.
You’re a very special person to me,
And I’d give you the world if I could.
You would take me by my hand,
And my face would light up with a smile.
Off we’d go – destination unknown,
Only our happiness seemed worthwhile.
When you look at your granddaughter today,
You can still see the pride
Of me and you, Pop,
Walking hand in hand, side by side.
I’m still the chubby little girl
Looking for a candy shop,
And you’re still the loving man
With the giving heart that has yet to stop.
And still, you're my Pop.
