Too Busy

Children are children for only a little while. Let's enjoy their childhood with them and not push them to grow up too soon.

The little boy said,
“Daddy, play a game with me.”
The father said,
“Not now, son. I’m just too busy.”
The little girl said,
“Mommy, read a book to me.”
The mother said, “I’m busy.
Please don’t bother me.”
The children now are grown—
For time has passed you see.
The words “too busy” I once spoke to them
They now speak to me.
