A life so fragile, placed in your hands,
To mold and teach to understand....
To mold a caring and honest soul,
to teach morals, and to set a goal.
To understand feelings, to accept without change,
to love without judgment,
To be a friend
A live, MY life, placed in your hangs,
to watch me grow, to help me plan.
To know one day you must set me free
to live the life I choose for ME.
(written approx. 1983, for Soni.)
