Grow in Time

 - Halper (c. 1999)

His first cries were tears of wonder
And her first breath scared her so.
His first dream was warm down under
First impressions on the go.

Now we've got one more heart to shine
One more chance to grow in time.

Her first words a sacred poem
First steps are always hard to take.
First chance you get to know him
Will bring first impressions on the make.

First child he's been this lifetime
First full moon of this year.
First chance she has to spread some sunshine
Will bring first impressions loud and clear.
