This poem was written to try and convey the true love of a knowing parent, realising how we lose innocence with knowledge, and that life is not always going to be happy, so you must make it what you want it to be.

Oh, dear little girl

Welcome, to this world

This place of love and colour,

It is so peaceful, like no other

 

You will laugh and you will play

But soon that innocence will be a dream gone away

So enjoy this time, young and free

Oblivious to the world, around you and me

 

As you grow up, you will learn more

And this world, is not what you saw

It’s a harsh place, full of evil and wrong

And I will protect you, from all that comes along

 

Because, dear little girl, you are my love

You are my life, and I can’t get enough

I’ll do anything for you, I hope you know that

But this is for later, cherish all that you have

 

Don’t waste a moment of your youth, you won’t get it again

So I will do my absolute best, to protect you from anguish and pain.

Be yourself, and grow up happy and free,

Because little girl, this is it. You and me

 

Eventually you will grow up, and you will see

That this is not a nice world, colourful and pretty

And with knowledge, your innocence goes away

And this world gets ever darker, each day

 

And as you grow up, you will learn more

And this world, is not what you saw

It’s a harsh place, full of evil and wrong

And I will protect you, from all that comes along

 

I will support you in every way I can, and see you through

And I will do all this, out of sheer love for you

My love for you will never die, though I may

And you will have to survive on your own, one day

 

I will watch over you, my spirit will always be with you

I just hope your good guidance, will guide you through

Now I won’t be able to talk, but I’ll always be by your side

Go, dear girl, explore the world and be free, no longer should you hide.

 

I always wanted to be there for you, but my work here is done

You can make your own choices now, walk or run

But make the most of this life, for it does not last an eternity

And as long and hard as it is, cherish it, for soon you will join me

 

In an eternal sleep, in an ultimate peace

In this tranquil death, where hatred may cease

So don’t waste a moment, open your wings and fly

Go dear girl, make the most of your time

 

love life to the full, be free and be happy,

Find a person that you truly love, settle down and marry

Have kids of your own, and teach them what I taught you,

That eventually their time will come, and they will be free too

 

And as they grow up, they will learn more

And this world, is not what they saw

It’s a harsh place, full of evil and wrong

And I will protect you all, from all that comes along

 

And eventually they will leave your caring arms, and you will leave them

And this will happen, over and over again

Protect them as best you can, love them with all your heart

Because a day will come, where you will have to part

 

And all that you taught them, will guide them safely too

And we can watch them from up here, just me and you

Together in life, and together in death

That bond never broken, by the love we left

 

But hush little girl, we are still here now, together in peace

And I wish the best for you, so come, sit next to me

Enjoy your youth, the time we spend together

Because although you don’t know it, it won’t last forever.

 

So… Oh, dear little girl

Welcome, to this world

This place of love and colour,

And It is so peaceful, like no other

 

You will laugh and you will play

But soon that innocence will be a dream gone away

So enjoy this time, young and free

Oblivious to the world, around you and me
