Hug me, mommy,
Please just hold me tight each time I cry.
I know you’re tired and I’m sorry.
Maybe one more lullaby?
Guide me, daddy.
Show me how to know the right from wrong.
No one’s taught me yet,
I haven’t been here very long.
Lead me, mommy.
Please, I just want you to hold my hand.
I know I’m very little,
But I’m trying to understand.
Show me, daddy.
I want to grow up big and strong like you.
But I won’t know how to act,
If you don’t show me what to do.
Teach me, mommy.
Please just have some patience as I learn.
I don’t know very much quite yet,
I just now got my turn.
Love me, daddy.
I know I’m small but I’ve got a mighty heart.
And though you may not see it yet,
I’ve loved you from the start.
Help me, mommy.
I need you to help me learn and play and grow,
I know that it may take a while,
But there’s so much I want to know.
Protect me, daddy.
Keep me safe. I trust your arms the most.
And when I’m feeling scared at night,
Please hold me to you close.
Please remember that I’m little,
I have a long, long way to go.
And it won’t be long before
I won’t be little anymore.
