My Little One


Hear my words well little one as you fall asleep tonight.
My feet won't be there all the time but I will still stand by your side.
My arms won't all ways hold you safe but my strength will surrounds you till you can stand on your own again.
Hear my words 'oh, little one and try your best not to forget.
I won't all ways be here but it does not mean I do not care, deep inside is where I am and I am still a part of you.
