Dear little hands we miss them so
All through the day wherever we go,
All through the night how lonely is seems,
For no little hands wake me out of my dreams.
We miss them all through the weary hour,
We miss them as others miss sunshine and flowers;
Day time or night time, wherever we go,
Dear little hands, we miss them so."
