*****************Children Of Love*************10/4/79


love is looking into their eyes
and seeing the joy of your little
girl and boy.
these are the children of love
'pure and clean' just like a dove.

they fly above their elders lives
touching all the husbands and wives.
for most of them are the parents
of these children of love.
they are the guardians of these white doves.

'children of love' young and carefree
teaching all of us what life is meant to be.

showing us joy when we are sad
explaining happiness when they are glad.
expressing to us
what we choose to hide
life and love is one of a kind.

children of love is what they are
always near, never far.
they listen to us and what
we have to teach.

but we are the ones
who stretch out and reach.
trying to touch love

'from these little white doves'.

    What a nice poem. Children are so sweet and innocent. We as adults
    can really learn a lot from them if we only take the time. They make
    good teachers too. Thanks for a good one! (Report) Reply

    Children of love, carefree in spirit, innocense revealed, having unconditional love.
    We as adults, at times, need to take a feather out of their book! Lovely indeed! ; D (Report) Reply
