I wish you sunshine, my dear one, my dear one. And treetops for you to soar past. I wish to you innocence, my child, my child. I pray you don’t grow up too fast. Never know pain, my dear one, my dear one. Nor hunger nor fear nor sorrow. Never know war, my child, my child. Remember your hope for tomorrow.
My prayer is simple, my dear one, my dear one. May you never need understand. My prayer is for peace time, my child, my child. Live it well, and this life can be grand.
