Next came running, then climbing so high just to see
How far you would travel, just you and me.
Hikes through the forest along well-travelled trails,
Your dog by your side, wagging his tail.
We trekked up the mountains then down to the sea.
No rocks, dirt or concrete ever stopped me.
Hard work on the job brought scuffs, scrapes and splits
but these wounds on the leather didn’t matter a bit.
As you sit on the porch with your dog by your side,
these weary old boots bring a smile to your eyes.
Remember the challenges you confidently faced
As you started out slowly then picked up the pace.
All the adventures we had since you took that first step
Are memories to treasure and never forget.
