You Can'T Win - Poem by Phil Ward

When I was a baby I couldn't talk,
Give a few months and I managed a squawk
I learnt the few words you taught me to say,
You encouraged my learning every day,
I was speaking by two you were over the moon,
And soon after that I sang my first tune,
I was up on my feet and walking was fun,
You helped me with that and taught me to run,
I loved all the things you helped me to do,
Playing an instrument, tying my shoe,
Now that I'm older and wanting to play,
Sit down and shut up is all that you say.
