Treasure Island

Janice M Pickett

(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

In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
