If we were children, our hands would clasp

Without trembling for fear of being trapped.

 

If we were children, our hearts would speak

Without saying a word or missing a beat.

 

If we were children, we would laugh

And skip merrily down our chosen path.

 

If we were children, we would cry

At the very idea of saying goodbye.

 

Darling, let's be children all we can.

Hold happiness in small, determined hands

As we reach for each other without thought

Of the shame and cynicism past hurt taught.

This is the best poem I've read in quite a while, Pea. (Might have the teensiest to do with the space I'm in?) Regardless, it's so well done. Pulls at my heartstrings.
