you used to be my universe when I was very small
you were my sun and moon and stars
my day, my night, my near, my far
and everything at all

in my sandbox days you were the sun that lit and warmed my life
the king and queen of make believe
and everything that I perceived
fell from your rays of life

as I grew up you became my moon
you watched over me by night
but during the day I went away
far out of your sight

now that I’m grown and I’ve left home you are the star in my sky
if I can’t find my way
I have but to say
and you will be my guide

though in growing up we’ve grown apart
you’ll always be my universe at heart
