– steady now
but there’s so much to explore!
– take your time
but everything’s a toy, a joy!
so many things to see and smell
and feel and taste… oh, eew!!
– yes, but…
look at me!
– be careful, or you’ll fall
the world’s so big
– and you’re so small
but now’s my time, I want it all!
– one day, little one, when you’re grown.
Everything comes to she who waits.
Hold on! Shine bright!
Never lose that spark, that drive
the curiosity of a child.
