When I was young and words were few
Seems that I knew just what to do
I’d “ape” the sounds that I had heard
Turned out that each was but a word.
Soon I was there upon the stage
At rather quite an early age
With words and syllables to speak
Like some enchanted childhood freak.
I never thought back in those days
That I’d wind up in high school plays
I learned to sing and tap dance too
With lessons from the age of two.
Quite long I’d been an only child
Forever charming and beguiled
With discipline supplied on call
And kisses shared with every fall.
Today we miss what used to be
Safe childhood and security
Our faith is great it’s taught us this
All lives were meant to share God’s bliss !
