Billy Dean – Let Them Be Little lyrics

I can remember when you fit in the palm of my hand
You felt so good in it, no bigger than a minute
How it amazes me, you're changing with every blink
Faster than a flower blooms, they grow up all too soon so

Let them be little, 'cause they're only that way for a while
Give them hope, give them praise, give them love everyday
Let them cry, let them giggle, let them sleep in the middle
Oh, just let them be little

I've never felt so much in one little tender touch
I live for those kisses, your prayers and your wishes
Now that you're teaching me how only a child can see
Tonight while we're on our knees, all I ask is please

Let them be little 'cause they're only that way for a while
Give them hope, give them praise, give them love every day
Let them cry, let them giggle, let them sleep in the middle
Oh just let them be little

So innocent, precious soul, you turn around and It's time to let them go

So let them be little 'cause they're only that way for a while
Give them hope, give them praise, give them love everyday
Let them cry, let them giggle, let them sleep in the middle
Oh just let them be little

Let them be little

    This is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. I first heard this when I was 7, and I thought it was a romantic love song. I found it again in 2012 or 2013, and I realized that it was talking about how parents should appreciate and love their children while still young. I think every parent should hear it and think about it. Don't expect or demand from your offspring to behave or think like a teen or an adult; let them grow with age, while appreciating the short time you have with them. Be the kind of parent you had or wished you had; be your child's best friend, teacher, counselor, etc., you're more than a parent, after all. You should want them to remember you as someone (fill in the blank yourself). Remember that your actions affect them.
