Each little palm print on the wall
Each trinket on the stair,
Remind us daily of the ones
Who proudly left them there.
Someday the wall will be so clear
The stairs a safer place
But in the meantime do make sure
They learn to run the Race!
So enjoy each little thing they do
While in your house they stay;
And help them grow with faith in God
Who’ll lead them all the way.
