Farmer’s Daughter

My dear I can't give you the prettiest dresses
I can't give you the whitest socks
I can't afford to buy you the big bows
Or that pink pig you wanted at the county fair
But my darling
I can give you my love
I can give you your mom's love
I will shower you with affection
Protect you from harm
But darling..
I cant protect you from yourself
Like my plants
I have to let you grow
I will feed you knowledge
And you'll be ready for the world to see you
They will love you darling
You go now
You go seek those dreams of yours
I'll still sit here like the tree you fell off of
I'll still be here protecting you
Don't be scared darling
They'll love you
Just like I did
Like I always will
