Through The Eyes Of A Child

Poem by GENE GRIFFIIN

To see their wonderful smile,
So full, yet free from guile,
So innocent, so undefiled,
To see - through the eyes of a child.

To see their time of play,
Never thinking of the pain of yesterday,
With a heart so happy and mild,
To see - through the eyes of a child.

To see how quick they are to forgive,
To love, to cherish, and to live.
No poet can tell it - not even Oscar Wilde.
To see - through the eyes of a child.

To see their peace of heart,
How quickly their troubles depart!
In a world so crazy, so wild,
To see -through the eyes of a child.

In our Heavenly Father, we ought to rest,
As a child doth so blest.
Free from care in world so defiled,
To see - through the eyes of a child!
