Time For Little Hands

(Brian Holmes)
"Time for Little Hands"

Time. Time for little hands today,
To touch the surface of your daddy's heart,
To stretch the seconds of this day to all eternity.
I feel my reflection in you now.

One little hand and one big hand,
Around and around the face we go,
To learn the details of a crystal's face and edge.
We'll measure our days in magical ways.

Time. Time for little eyes today to see
The colors and the shapes and smiles of
Suns and moons, and trains and spoons.
I see my reflection in you now.

One little hand and one big hand,
Around and around the face we go,
To learn the details of a crystal's face and edge.
We'll measure our days in magical ways.

I'll find time today to be a little boy today,
And synchronize our lives for awhile.
I'll find time today to carry you, and
Guide your way.

Time. Time for little ears today to hear
The silly sounds and words,
Absorb a puppy's breath, a note, a melody, a symphony.
I hear my reflection in you now.

One little hand and one big hand,
Around and around the face we go,
To learn the details of a crystal's face and edge.
We'll measure our days in magical ways.

Do not squander time I've heard them say,
For it is this of which your life is made.
I promise I'll find time for your little hands today.
I promise I'll find time for your little hands today.
