Time To Be Brave


It was time to be brave

On such a big day,

Excited, but nervous

With nothing to say.


“You’ll be just fine”

Her daddy did say,

“All little girls

Feel just the same way”


A faltering smile

And is that a tear

On the face of his daughter

Of whom he holds dear.


He gives her a hug

And holds her so tight,

She clings to the safety

With all of her might.


“Be a brave little girl

And don’t look so sad,

I promise my darling

It won’t be that bad”


“It soon will be over

And when it’s all done,

You may even think

It was rather quite fun”


And indeed so it was,

For her first day at school,

Despite all her fears,

Proved fun after all.
