Innocent Child - Poem by Phil Soar
Oh Innocent child, how I dream whilst you sleep,
Of all that I want you to have, and to keep,
Of how best to steer you, and not have to shove,
Be careful I don't smother you with my love.
Oh Innocent child, What I wish in those dreams,
Is that your world does not fall apart at the seams,
That your future's secure, that you live for today,
And the good that is in you, does not go away.
Oh Innocent child, you have so much to give,
Your innocent youth, your exuberance to live,
Just to look in your eyes, is a joy to behold,
A glow that warms hearts, when the weather is cold.
Oh Innocent child, whilst you sleep, be aware,
There are those in the world who do more than care,
They watch every move with affection galore,
And are there when your feelings are down on the floor.
Oh Innocent child, though you know of no wrong,
And a minute of shopping, to you, is too long,
Whilst you sleep and dream softly of innocent things,
Be aware of the pleasure your joy of life brings.
And sleep soundly.
