"Walk a little slower Daddy", said a child so small.
"I’m following in your footsteps and I don’t want to fall.
Sometimes your steps are very fast.
Sometimes they’re hard to see;
So walk a little slower, Daddy,
For you are leading me.
Someday when I’m all grown up,
You’re what I want to be.
Then I will have a little child
Who’ll want to follow me.
And I would want to lead just right,
And know that I was true;
So, walk a little slower, Daddy,
For I must follow you."
