For Little One
Author: Barbara Goodhew


This is for a little one we all know.

Letting her heart show.

So much growing to do yet.

We know as children we have our favorite pet.

Children are honest and pure of heart.

We need to listen to them from the start.

So as kids never let your heart grow up.

------- Author's Notes -------

This is a poem for Amy and other little ones.

I have never tried writing before for children, I know it's not the best but I tried for Amy and Terrie.
