Stand Up And Walk



That soft and tiny footsteps keep rocking in my ears.

That urge and desire to stand straight continue to stick in my mind.

And I can still see the steady look in your eyes.

And your growing confidence as you continue to step forward.

And I just cannot forget that moment when you began your very first steps.......

Oh my children.......

Every time when you tried to stand up, our hearts went with you.

Every time when you fought hard to stand straight, our hearts cried together for you.

Every time when you struggled to steady your footsteps, our hearts jumped for you.

But every time when you had a step forward, our heart clapped for you.

Every time when you stretched up your hands in victory, our hearts sang for you.

And every time when you giggled and laughed in happiness, we laughed along with tears in our eyes.

Oh my children.......

We had always resisted from holding you, again and again.

We had held back our fear and tears, again and again.

We continued to give you the confidence to walk ahead.

We continued to cheer you on as you struggled with your every step.

And we did it together, remember? again and again.

Oh, my children.......

There are things that we can and want to teach and guide you.

There are things that we can and want to work together along with you.

But there are also things that we know but it is good for you to learn on your own.

And there are also things that we simply cannot but you must pick up for a better tomorrow.

Oh my children.......

A little step... A little faltering step.

A little step... A little steadier step.

A little step... A little falling aback.

... means so much to you and to us.

But that is the price of our growing up.

Oh our children.......

We will always be around to help you.

We will always be around to carry you.

But you must learn to stand up and stand strong on your own.

And you must walk your life journey...

...on a brighter and a better route than what we have been through.
