In these beautiful, snow-white bootees
Walked my two gorgeous, delightful babies.
Mature adults they have now become,
I feel so proud to be their mum.
As babes, I gently taught them much;
Right from wrong, with a loving touch.
These bootees are made for walking, I told ‘em when they cried
The road is long, be not afraid, for He is by your side.
Walk tall, chin up, and be hard working,
Truthful, loyal, kind and caring.
As their mum, I tried my best,
To His grace, I left the rest.
For these children—precious gems of mine,
I thank Him, and pray He keeps them fine.
They’re still my babies, I love them oodles
They’ve done me proud, boodles and noodles!
Yes, one’s attained an MBA,
The other, has a PhD on the way!
