Tiny infant warm~
We should had pampered you~
Yet we were too blind. ~
Thank you now~
We have a second chance~
To keep your beloved babes from harm perchance?
Little one so precious~
Oh! How we should had coddled you~
Yet we were too materialistic! ~
Will we now this day? ~
Will we remember you beloved babe?
Babe of love~
How we should had protected you~
But we were too selfish! ~
As your giving nature~
We have a chance again~
Through your innocent children~
Will we now them defend?
Child of great honor~
How you deserved to be spoiled~
Yet we allowed you to be poor~
Now your lambs still cry~
Will we even bat our eyes?
Newborn of the highest royalty~
How you should had been indulged in softness~
Yet we were too self-serving to give! ~
Now knowing more~
Even ourselves can we begin to forgive?
Baby sent to save us~
More of us should had fussed over you~
Yet we ignored your needs. ~
Will we ever be humble enough~
To come to you on bended knees?
We should had respected you more~
Yet we walked by~
Almost your being we deplored! ~
Will we now stop and share? ~
Maybe give more of a care?
Sweet sugar of young wisdom~
Our admiration for you should had been better~
Yet we overlooked your teachings! ~
Shall we still disregard~
Your bright light? ~
Shall we ever have good judgment~
To climb out of our foolish plights?
