you're falling asleep in my arms
dimpled hand grasping my finger
droopy blue eyes study mine
complete trust and adoration
i stroke your head and wonder
what thoughts will go 'round in there
when you're all grown up
i wonder how you'll change your world
when you're a man
what heartaches you'll have to suffer
dear little baby!
is it possible that, then
you could offer more to this poor world
than you do now?
