god bless my little randolph
    wherever he may go
and may he walk the 8-fold path
    joy, compassion all he'll sow


        forgive my darling chipmunk
            bring him back to me
        my precious lotus flower
            my acorn 'neath the tree


                shower him with kisses
                    shower him with grace
                let me see him one more time
                    to touch his stubbly face


                        place the thorn within his heart
                            to make him wish for me
                        and never let us be apart
                            for all eternity
