Janice M Pickett

Rookie (Middlesex England)


A child sees the beauty we have long forgotten
treasures we have yet to find
A child knows trust beyond suspicion
A child has an innocent mind

Love is given without question
A touch a kiss a moment shared
A Little blessing born from passion
All open and giving without a care

But shatter that with careless thought
examples set that cause them pain
A child will quickly lose their innocence
and never be able to trust again

So think about your precious child
Be a parent who holds love dear
Teach good values and gentle kindness
and show your child
they have nothing to fear
