In my dreams
In my genius
You are the one work of promise
I made you
Then you made me
Complete

In my grace
In my prescience
I gave you life
To live in my presence
I made you
Then you made me
Complete

And if I gave you wings
And a voice that sings
I did it all just for me
And if I gave you love
It was over and above
All courtesy

In my search for pride and power
I reached for you every hour
I moulded you from lifeless clay
One shady day

Then I touched your sightless eyes
They opened like the sunrise
I wrenched a life from the clay
That shady day

If we should ever reach the sun
I am the only one
Who touched it twice
And if I should ever die
You are the reason why
The one life could suffice

I think of my precious child, now 21, when I read this. Hits home eloquently. Expresses my feelings exactly. Comforting the last line: "You are the reason why / The one life would suffice." Thanks for sharing.

Well the old one keeps disappearing so I just picked the first red head in the gallery provided by A2k. Plus it was raining all day today.
