Did I tell you,

That I like my mother's heart,

That I am uncertain

Of my guardian's part.

Did I tell you,

That I want to love Jesus,

Though I can't spell his name,

I want Him the same.

Did I tell you,

That I want you to meet Him,

A friend of mine,

Is a friend of His too.

Did I tell you,

That I depend of you,

You and your tranquil strength.

Did I tell you,

That this poem was for you,

That you're the support of my strength,

Did I forget to tell you,

That you were my best friend,

Well now that I've told you,

I hope this won't end.
