Walk A Little Slower Daddy

"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,
Sometimes 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."

(Author Unknown)

**This was given to daddy this morning with the boys footprint beside the words. The boys asked daddy to read and reread the poem, bringing tears to daddy's eyes each time.
