A Childs Eyes

This world would be so much different
as seen through the eyes of a child,
No more hurt or pain, no war or misery.
Skies always blue, grass always green
through a child’s eyes, it seems,
tears would never pass,
friendships would always last.
There would be no more hunger,
no one would go without,
there would never be such words
as frown, hate, cry or doubt.
Grandpas, Grandmas, Moms and Dads
would all live on forever,
you would never need band-aids,
things would just get better.
Though a child’s eyes may plead
two prayers you’d never hear
are “Mommy, please don’t hit me,
Daddy, please don’t touch me there.”
There would be no feelings of anger,
you could always trust a stranger,
rainbows, would never leave the sky,
there would be a smile on every passerby.
If the world were seen
through the eyes of a child,
marriages would last awhile.
Moms ands Dads would never leave,
love would last for eternity.
Of all the things you could not say,
Gods name in school would be ok.
So when life starts to bother me,
I try to realize
how much different life would be
looking through a child’s eyes.

|I think i will stay a child for as long as possible (hopefully, till there is no breath left in my body!) Now, if only my child could also stay one forever! This is so sad, Abe...i wish all grownups could still eat s'mores...make snow angels...roll around in leaf piles...maybe the world would be a better place.
