One child really has so little time to give him,
another just doesn’t like to talk so much;
one lives too fast to squeeze much more in,
another, just depressed from such bad luck.
He should have seen all of this was coming,
he really has nothing he can say;
when they were young and craved his attention,
he was too busy back then “seizing the day.”
He’s learning to take what they give him,
make the most, enjoy and be kind;
it’s sad when parents pout with their children,
’cause it’s their children now who have so little time.
