Wisdom, My Child
These words of wisdom, I will give you my child
When on life's road someday you must embark
Enter the world with dreams and never be reviled
And when you leave life, leave more than just a simple remark.
Life will not be easy, but never change any of your ways
What you will become only you will have allowed
My child you will have many adventurous and wondrous days
And you will always make me feel so very proud.
These words of wisdom, I hope you take them to heart
As many turbulent and scary days for you will also lie ahead
Be always so courteous and polite and also so very smart
So sleep well my child, as you dream of tomorrow in your bed.
