I remember dreaming this very dream
where one day I would have you be independent,
and able to entertain yourself.
That dream has come true.
You can play by yourself, and use that amazing
imagination to it’s fullest potential.
I now can drive without music and enjoy the silence,
and just imagine how your mind is soaring.
I can even cook food for you
while you wait patiently for it to be ready.
I am able to shower with you near,
but I don’t have to worry about you
doing something that you shouldn’t be doing,
or that could be potentially dangerous.
I’ve realized such a sense of calmness since you
became this way,
and I’m truly glad it’s just like the dream I had.
