I won’t say ‘hurry up’, when you’ve stopped to smell the flowers.
I won’t rush you when you’re admiring the shape of the clouds.

You’ll join in with what I’m doing, and we’ll go at your pace.
I’ll delight in the world, just like you do.
You’re learning, and I’m learning too.
This is important. This here is what life is really about. Thank you for showing me that.
