Go to Poetic Prophecy


WALK   A  LITTLE  CLOSER

submitted by Karen Maskey

Walk a little closer, Daughter,

and tell me what's the matter.

I'd like to share you dreams and plans,

I love to hear your chatter!

I have walked this way before,

and I've had questions too.

Walk a little closer, Daughter

and you'll be glad you do.

Walk a little sweeter, Daughter,

Our tongues can be a pity.

Stamping feet and pouting mouths

don't make us look so pretty!

God gives us beauty from inside

much nicer than a dress.

Walk a little sweeter, Daughter,

and that will please me best.

Walk a little neater, Daughter,

You'll still have time to play.

Pick up your dolls and clothes and shoes,

and put them all away.

Your hair should shine, your dress be clean,

and no mud on your shoes.

Walk a little neater, Daughter,

that's what God would choose!

Walk a little slower, Daughter,

You're growing much too fast.

Enjoy your dolls and tea parties,

'cause girlhood days don't last.

Cherish rainbow, stars and sunshine,

you'll soon be grown up too.

Walk a little slower, Daughter,

and we'll be glad you do.
