She Follows Me
A little girl who follows me
A careful mom I want to be,
A little woman follows me;
I do not dare to go astray
For fear she'll go the self-same way.
I cannot once escape her eyes.
What e'er she sees me do she tries
Like me, she says she's going to be--
That little girl who follows me.
I must remember as I go
Through summer suns and winter snows,
I am building for the years to be--
That little girl that follows me.
