Go! Jack! Go!

It's your turn. It's your time.
The goals are simple. The goals are hard.
You're strong and smart.
And you might stumble.
But you don't fall.
You've got some good tricks.
You bounce right back.
And you're gone much too quickly, son.

I love you, child, every second of your life. Every sixtieth of a second, in this case.
