A newborn babe in mother’s arms
Weeps so many, many tears,
No comfort comes to it until
A lullaby, softly sung in its ears
Soothes away the pain, and lips
 To kiss away the tears.
 
 
Now grown into a little girl
Of but only a few young years,
On her first day at school
 She needs mum to calm her fears
And a warm shadow of protection
And her to kiss away the tears.
 
 
That day will soon come to be a Bride -
A day of champagne and cheers;
The thought of leaving the nest
Looms closer, and as it nears
She leans upon Dad’s shoulder
For him to kiss away the tears.
 
 
When married, it won’t be long
(As the clouds of euphoria clears)
Before she too will be a mother
To a child each parent reveres;
It’s her turn now to be the one
To kiss away the tears.
