Happy Father's Day 2012

It's Father's Day.  The poem that I share today came from my son's Kindergarten class.  Each month, the kids make a calendar for the month to take home.  They made one with a special Father's Day theme for June, and it included this poem that I thought was perfect for a blog post!

Art work by our Kindergartener.
 

Walk a Little Slower

"Walk a little slower,"
Said a little child so small. 
"I'm following in your footsteps,
And I don't want to fall.

Sometimes your steps are very fast,
Sometimes they're hard to see;
So walk a little slower,
For you are leading me. 

 Someday when I'm 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 k now that I was true;
So, walk a little slower,
For I must follow you."
