Dear boy, dream man, whomever you are and whomever you make haste to be
I ask you look at her as you do the stars and take care of her for me
For she deserves more than I can give and knows more than I can grasp
And if it comes to it I pray you'll know if you're not up for the task

Dear joy, dear sun, dear heavenly heart, see the dreams that come to you
And let no man or creation of God ever obstruct your view
For there are forces beyond my knowing that placed blessings in your eyes
So as you grow, as do they, so don't waste time asking why

Dear boy, dream man, realize her treasure and beware you don't abuse her choice
For though she chooses you remember that she's the reason angels rejoice
And that poetry, as moving as it is, lied motionless before she arrived
So I pass this flower onto you in hopes you may keep it alive

Dear joy, dear girl, dear woman today, see the things I know that you are
And that even as the journey ahead gets rough, you have the potential to travel far
And know in love, in heart, in soul, with me you'll always be
For I know the rose that you've always been, and I pray, in full bloom, you I see
