FATHER'S DAY POEM: "WALK A LITTLE PLAINER, DADDY"


By beanerywriters(11,675)



"Walk a little plainer, Daddy,”

Said a little boy so frail.

“I’m following in your footsteps

and I don’t want to fail.”

Sometimes your steps are very plain---

Sometimes the’re hard to see;

So walk a little plainer, Daddy,

For you are leading me.

 

I know that once you walked this way

Many years ago.

And what you did along the way

I’d really like to know.

 

For sometimes when I am tempted,

I don’t know what to do.

So walk a little plainer, Daddy,

For I must follow you.

 

Someday when I’m grown up

You’re like I want to be.

Then I will have a little boy

Who will want to follow me.

 And I would want to lead him right

And help him to be true,

So walk a little plainer, Daddy,

For we must follow you.
