There are little eyes upon you,
And they are watching night and day:
There are little ears that quickly take in every word you say;
There are little hands all eager to do everything you do,
And a little child who's dreaming of the day he'll be like you.
You're the little child's idol,
You're the wisest of the wise,
In his little mind about you, no suspicions ever rise;
He believes in you devoutly,
Holds all you say and do;
He will say and do in your way when
He's grown up to be like you.
There's a wide eyed little child who
believes you're always right,
and his ears are always open and he watches day and night;
You are setting an example
Everyday in all you do for the little child who's waiting
to grow up to be like you.
Yikes! Motherhood. It is all the calling I need or can handle and then only one day at a time with the grace of God Himself.
