from a child

Updated on July 9, 2011

message from a child

I am still only a child

Still learning about life

And growing as rapidly as I can

Both mentally and emotionally

But still growing

With much yet left to learn

Take my hand and lead me

If you wish

But do not try to force me

To go in a direction I man not want to go

Even when you do think it right

But show me why I should listen to you

Do not be just a parent to me

But be a teacher as well

I will make mistakes

I am positive of that

But I will learn from my mistakes

Just as you had to learn from yours

Teach me patience

By being patient with me

And forgive me when I do something wrong

Remember that you also were a child

Much as I am now

And there may come a day

When I am very much like you

As I follow the example

That you have set for me
