“Walk a Little Slower, Daddy”

Footprints

“Walk a little slower, Daddy,” said a little child so small.
“I’m following in your footsteps and I don’t want to fall.

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.”

– Bobbie Norman
