by George McKinsey Robinson
Im just a little child, you see
And youre so big and strong
I hate it when you yell at me
And point your finger long.
I would, I could, I know I should
I'm good, I wish you knew,
That in my little learning heart
I yearn to be like you.
But Im just a little child, you see,
And youre so hard to reach.
Come down and meet me eye to eye;
And talk with me; dont preach!
Within the space of face to face
My hope and courage soar.
Im just a little child you see
Who now knows I'll be more.
