With guiding hand and loving heart
I offer you this life advice
I wish for you a peaceful path
With much ease and tranquillity
I try to teach you this my child
But all you see is that I criticize.
Perhaps I need to learn
To guide a little gentler
Sometimes just to leave you be
To get the lesson on your own
I’m trying not to let you fall
But maybe that is how you grow.
