Two bright EYES are watching you, mother and dad,
They're watching you all the day long.
Absorbing unconciously all that you are,
Not dreaming that you could be wrong.
Two quick EARS are listening to all that you say,
They're listening to you, mother and dad.
Then speak of the things that are lovely and true,
For some day you'll wish that you had.
Two swift little FEET follow you all the day,
They step in the footprints you make.
If you follow God-given paths, they'll walk there too,
Or stray if His way you forsake.
Two soft little HANDS have been placed into yours,
They're trustfully clinging to you.
Today, while they're pliable, train them aright,
They'll do what you teach them to do.
A warm little HEART beats to music you make,
To your life notes of love or of hate,
It swings to the rhythm of your life all day,
Don't let if hear love notes too late.
