Little Child - Poem by Hannah Rippon

Oh little child
You look so small
When I look at you
You’re like a doll

You will one day
Grow up so fast
Looking back
At the years that pass

You look so calm
And pure within
My love for you
Will never grow dim

Oh little child
Remember your past
Think of the times
When you grew up fast
