Marilyn Lott Poems
A Child’s Mind
The world is wide with wonder
For everything is new
A child’s mind is like a sponge
Or like a flower sipping morning dew
I love to watch them question
Every single thing
You never know what is next
And what each day will bring
Perhaps we too should open
Our minds deliciously
And see the world as a child does
How exciting life would be!
It is not my brother's birthday
Nor the day he left for good
I have so many wonderful memories
I would repeat them if I could.
My childhood was not perfect
But then no one's is, it's true
But is dotted with such excitement
I think it might excite you too.
