Let Them be Little

Let them be little for as long as they can

Let them use their imaginations, and play pretend

Let them love their stuffed animals and toys

For as long as they continue to enjoy

Before long, their innocent eyes will be broadened

and their worlds will no longer be common

Their sense of magic for long won’t stay

and their childhood will soon fade away

Don’t make them grow up fast, that isn’t fair

You have had your time, let them have theirs

Don’t let their memories be a screen

Let them get heard and always be seen

Let them teach you, and let them know you have learned

Much more than knowledge you will have earned

Listen to their stories, really hear their words

Even if they are stuttered or slurred

These are the most impressionable times for them

So it’s important how their time is spent

So, Let them be little, heck you be little to

I promise they won’t forget, and neither will you
