Eye's Of A Child

Through the eyes of a child
the world is grand
playing at the beach building castles of sand
Through the eyes of a child
the world is a wonder
on a stormy night hidden under the blankets scared of the thunder
Through the eyes of a child
the world is fascinating from the stars in the sky to natures sounds resonating
Through the eyes of a child
life has no time frame an endless mystery in a puzzle game
Through the eyes of the adult it all fades away
we live life so fast another hectic day
taking for granted our eyes of a child
now close them tight and as you open them let you imagination run wild.

    Take heart. As sure your as your imagination conjured these words, you prove hope is not lost. If the child is really the father of the man, then you are your own son, therefore more of a child than you were when young.Now back outside and play.

    Unfortunately, as adults we often become hardened by life. Everybody is in a hurry to grow up... but once you do, it's not so great? Oh, to be young again... thanks for the reminder!

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
