Child to a Father...

Postby jimshu » Wed Dec 21, 2011 2:20 am

The pictures you show in the stories that you read me
When I grow, will we go?
Can we see them?
Oh, how I want you to take me to see them,
The great animals you show me in the stories you read me.
Will they be there?
Will they graze where we gaze
In the wild where they should be?
I want to see them.
I want to hear them.
Will they be there when I grow?

I want to know when I grow you will take me to see them.
All the stories you have told,
When you read me to sleep and set me a-dreaming.
And the pictures that you showed.
I want to know we can go see a rhino.
And if I want,
The elephant,
The leopard, the lion and the big buffalo
Are gonna be there,
Roaming free where
A little boy dreamed them?

Tell me Dad, will we go see the rhino?
Can we go and enjoy them?
All the beasts in the pictures in the stories that you read me?
While man destroys them
Can you ignore them?
Will you help me protect them for my own little boy?

I want to know we can go see a rhino.
And if we want,
The elephant,
The leopard, the lion and the big buffalo
Are gonna be there,
Roaming free where
My little boy dreamed them?

473 rhino have been poached in South Africa to date this year!
