In The Eyes Of A Child
I never want to forget
how to immerse myself in the sweet simplicity of life
attained only by seeing it
through the eyes of an innocent child.
Being determined to remember
that today is all that matters and all that exists,
so live it by laughing often,
and loving unconditionally.
Finding happiness in the little things
like bubbles that pop after landing on the grass,
food eaten with the fingers,
catching snowflakes with your tongue
and the cold noses of puppies.
Marveling at the magnificence of fluffy white clouds,
four leaf clovers
and sunsets that turn into a sky filled with a million bright stars.
Then when the day is done and darkness fills the sky,
give into the warmth of a favorite quilt,
the tug of heavy eyelids
and drift into wistful dreams.
