    "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,
    somtimes 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."

    this made me tear up as i am a single mother of three still hoping that things will work out between me and my ex but only time will tell

    Makes me wonder whether I should be following my own dad, we don't get along all too swell right now. [​IMG]
