Christina: Don't Be Afraid
"Don't Be Afraid" by Jessie Wilcox-Smith

DON'T BE AFRAID

Don't be afraid,
little darling ~
I will hold your hand
I'll steady your first step
and I'll guide your last ~
whether you're on water
or land.

Don't be afraid
little child of mine
No harm will come to you
I am the Angel God has sent
to help you make it through

Oh, all the sights that you will see
and all the places you will go
All the poems you will write
all the dancing you will do
and all the things you'll know.

The World is waiting for you.
Don't hesitate to start.

I will help you take each step.

But I cannot guard your heart.
