Found this waaay back in my notes. (the second of 689, I believe) I wrote this little poem when I was in my teens. If I remember correctly it was a song at the time, but I don’t recall the tune. It’s not a work of art by any stretch, but it expresses my heartfelt love for kiddoes. I hope this little ditty makes you smile. 🙂
I went out to the park today
Saw a couple ‘o’ kiddies at play
Loved watching their charming games
Wanted to match faces with names
Here’s what I was askin’ myself
Gazing down at one chubby-faced elf
What will he grow up to be…
When he’s about as old as me?
Will he go to outer space?
Will he be a star?
Looking at that clever face
I can’t imagine he won’t go far
I saw a little girl in pink
Here is what she made me think
What kinda woman will she be
A bright future do I foresee
Will she be decked out in lace?
Will she be a star?
Looking at her youthful face
I can’t imagine she won’t go far
She flies a kite while he plays ball
For their age they seem so tall
As I watch their joyful play
A greater question comes my way
Will she be a woman of grace?
Will he be a Christian?
They start a playful game of chase
As I begin to pray for them
Lord help that little movie star
Lord help my space man
To turn to You, confess their sin
Just as quickly as they can
