Take time to laugh and sing
And play and cuddle them a bit,
Tell them a story now and then
And steal a little time to sit.
And listen to their childish talk
Or take them for a little walk.
Take time to hear their prayers at night,
to really cherish and enjoy.
A little girl with flaxen curls
And the small wonder of a boy.
They ask so little when theyre small,
Just love and tenderness, thats all.
