I Learned to Walk

I learned to walk when you were beside me
But I learned to cry all on my own
I learned to talk with you there to guide me
And I practiced when I was alone

I learned to laugh when Daddy was funny
And to smile when I felt all your love
I learned to play when outside was sunny
Watching the clouds and the birds move above

I learned to steal when my siblings showed me
And to lie when I learned of time-out
I learned to apologize whenever you told me
When to whisper and when, if ever, to shout

I learned of God every week when you took me
And to write when I went to school
I only found God when I myself went searching
Finding much of the world to be cruel

I learned that falling down happens often
But that I can't be afraid to ask for aid
I learned that others can easily soften
The blows of a swift piercing blade

I learned to walk when you were beside me
I walk every day as if you still are
Remembering all the lessons you've taught me
Knowing you're the reason I've come this far
