GUIDE ME NOW
When I spill some food on my nice clean dress or maybe forget to tie my shoe, Please be patient and perhaps reminisce about the many hours I spent with you when I taught you how to eat with care, plus tying laces and your numbers, too. Dressing yourself and combing your hair. Those were precious hours spent with you. So when I forget what I was about to say, just give me a minute – or maybe two. It probably wasn’t important anyway, and I would much rather listen just to you. If I tell the story one more time, and you know the ending through and through, please remember your first nursery rhyme when I rehearsed it a hundred times with you. When my legs are tired and it’s hard to stand or walk the steady pace that I would like to do, please take me carefully by my hand, and guide me now as I so often did for you.
