Yeps....When Shall You Turn 16?

WHEN SHALL YOU TURN SIXTEEN

When shall you grow
Out of your past's shadow
Come home, come Home
Your Beloved is waiting
For you to welcome.

You are no more a child
to be hiding behind masks
How long you'll relish
Your birthday sugar cakes
And what shall you achieve
by sending your naughty pix
and silly furtive SMS?

How long shall you loiter
in others' temporary houses
Fifteen is long gone
Soon Sixteen will be gone
the Good Lord beckons
is it not time to come
to your Beloved's Home? ?

Come, grow with me
I will take you home
And show you to Mom
While she teaches you a dish
I will teach you to change
your little baby's nappies
All during Day's time
And of course at night
You can open for your Baby
your little bag of tricks
Ah, come and Happee be! !
