Footprints

“Walk a little slower daddy” said the child so small.
“I’m following in your footsteps and don’t want to fall.

Sometimes your steps are very fast, sometimes they’re hard to see;
so walk a little slower, daddy, for you are leading me.

Someday when I am all grown up, you’re what I want to be;
then I will have a little child who’ll want to follow me.

And I would want to lead just right.
and know that I was true,
so walk a little slower, daddy,
For I must follow you.”
