Finding you Fearless… I taught you to Fear.
Eternally Curious… I taught you Indifference.
Charmingly Honest… I taught you Pretence.
Openly Friendly… I taught you Caution.
Implicitly Trusting… I taught you to Doubt.
Clingingly Needy… I taught you Independence…
…and considered it a ‘Job’ well done!
Now My Child, it’s your turn.
Hold my hand and teach me to be…
Do your “Job.”
Teach me to Love!
