What will I be when I grow up?

My son once asked of me

Life is a long road I said

And only so far we see

What is near around us

We can understand

What is further down the road

Will one day be near at hand


So do the things that you can do

Let interest be your guide

And you will grow into your self

And in many things take pride

And something deep inside you

Will keep you going strong

And help will come and find you

If ever things go wrong


And now old age has come to me

A road still lies ahead

Important still to walk it

And banish any dread

Listen to his voice today

Be faithful to the vow

Our destiny is holiness

Tomorrow yes and now
