Don’t Come Yet (Christopher’s Song)

(I was reminded today of this lyric that I wrote when I was 19 years old, and expecting my first child. I used to play it to him often when he was in his mother’s stomach. After he was born, and even up to the time he was ten or so, he would curl up into a fetal position on his bed when I played it.)

Don’t come yet, I haven’t made the world, into what it should be,
Don’t come yet, there’s still some problems in this world,
I don’t want you to see,
There’s still a lot of lies and hate, it’s gonna take some time to change it,
Don’t come yet I haven’t made the world, into what it should be,

Don’t come yet, I haven’t had the time, to make the world a better place,
Don’t come yet, there’s still some problems in this world,
I don’t want you to face,
But I guess there’s nothing I can say,
You’re already on your way,
But don’t worry, I guess it’s for the better,
We’ll change the world,
Together.
