They Were All Just Babies Once

They were all just babies once
She’s all grown up now
The office bully
Learned to walk
twenty nine years ago
And the evil politician
learned how to lie for the first time in seventy two
And those who would hurt you scorn you my love
Who’ve no right to make you feel small this way
they first learned to walk on fat wobbly legs a couple of decades back
It never made much difference to their poise or posture though

Whilst you my love
My precious creature
You were born full and deep with second time round wisdom
With enough strength
To set the world the example it aches for
Just be strong and ride the wave
For me, for you
for the world you want to love
