You Are Six, And I Am You

I woke up this morning to tell you
I love you still
and how brilliant you are
because you like to learn things

You are six, and I am you

I know I’m late but I had to see you
I see you still
and say how grateful I am
because you were always kind

You are six, and I am you

I play us back on old VHS and watch you 
I knew you well
and think how once I hated your small voice
because you wouldn’t be quiet

You are six, and I am you

Now I know I was too slow to forgive you
it’s not your fault
and I’m no longer mad
because of what happened when

You were six, and I was you
