Love

Love is having a partner
that’s your best friend
Love is having a partner
that’s there to the end

Love is having a partner
that knows it’s about being there
Love is having a partner
that’s knows not to talk just hear

Love is having a partner
that makes you feel better on a bad day
Love is having a partner
that knows exactly what to say

Love is having a partner
that understands you
Love is having a partner
that you are happy that said “I do”

Love is
What I have.

George L. Cook III 2010

Because I’m Daddy
I will be there to protect you
I will look over you
No matter what you do

You are my child
I know at times you don’t need me
I know you need your space for awhile

I understand that you are growing up
Developing a life of your own
But I’m still going to watch over you’re butt

Even when your grown
you know about 30 or 35
I’ll still consider you my own

It’s because I only want to see you happy
I know I can be pest at times
But hey, I’m your daddy

George L. Cook III 2010

Anyone: I couldn’t love Anyone but you

Beautiful: There is no one as Beautiful as you

Commitment: I am so glad we made a Commitment when we said I do
