Little One

Daddy tell me true, is it here to stay?
Is it worth it living, feeling this way?
Can you tell me how? Can you tell me why?
Can you tell me when it goes away?

Little one… close your eyes. Little one… shed your tears.
Little one… hold my hand tight as you can
Little one… take a breath. Little one… let it out
Little one… let your love swallow your doubt

Daddy, where’d she go? Tell me, is she here?
How can she be gone and feel so near?
This aching in my heart, will it burst apart?
Can you take away some of this fear?

Little one… close your eyes. Little one… shed your tears
Little one… hold my hand tight as you can
Little one… take a breath. Little one… let it out
Little one… let your love swallow your doubt

Now I’ll tell you true, it don’t go away
But it won’t flood your mind everyday
Memories will rise, reaching for the Sun
Memories of mischief, laughter and fun

Little one…close your eyes. Little one…can you hear?
Little one…that’s her voice sounding so clear
Little one…hold your breath. Little one…have her count.
Little one…let your memories show the way out
Little one…let your love swallow your doubt
