Two worn little shoes with a hole in the toe
And why have I saved them? well, all mothers know.
There's nothing so sweet as a baby's worn shoe
and the patter of little footsteps following you.
The feet they once held have grown slender and strong;
Tonight they they'll be tired after dancing so long.
I guided her feet when she wore such as these,
Dear God, may I ask, won't you guide them now, please?

"To the world you might just be one person,
but to one person you might just be the world."
