Children And Innocence

Rating: 5.0

There is a a purity born into every baby…an innocence that runs deep…I imagine every parent feels it whenever they watch their baby sleep.

We not only see it in the way they sleep…but in the morning when they rise…we see it in the way they look at us…it's in their smile…in their eyes.

I saw it in my children and grandchildren…in the different things they'd say and do…and I imagine you've seen it in your children…and in your grandchildren too.

I'm also sure you've seen it even if you don't have children…if that was never meant to be…because innocence is one of the easiest and most endearing sights our eyes will ever see.

Yes, if you want to view a little innocence…watch a child…listen to their sounds…you'll quickly come to realize…that is…where innocence abounds.

And we're not alone…nature also sees their innocence for why do you suppose…she allows the ladybug to crawl upon their finger…and the butterfly to land upon their nose.

But innocence is fragile and as the years go by
if it's not cared for…
if it's not nurtured…
there's a chance that it may die.

So I pray…once born…once created…once that innocence arrives…
we'll do our best with all our children…to keep that innocence alive..

For I can think of nothing more distressing…
more tragic…
a more sorrowful expense…
than a child who's lost their purity…
who's lost their trust…
who's lost their innocence.
