I'm sitting here today with my grandchildern playing all around me.  They remind me of how precious they are and how their smiles are what keeps me going.  They also remind me of a poem I wrote a while back so I thought I would share it.

Through a Child's Eyes

Through a child's eyes we begin with warmth and darkness

Security and love that only God can bless

Through a child's eyes comes brightness and cold

Being born from a mother whose love makes her bold

Through a child's eyes there is a face full of love

Seeing her angel that has been sent from above

Through a child's eyes are wondrous sights to explore

Parents and relatives to meet and adore

Through a child's eyes come colors, shapes and sounds

So much to see and hear, curiosity has no bounds

Through a child's eyes there is innocence and bliss

Something in the world no one should ever miss

Through a child's eyes mobility is limited somewhat

Their small bodies cannot do some of this or that

Through a child's eyes growing is causing more freedom

Now they can reach and explore this amazing kingdom

Through a child's eyes independence separates loved ones

The end of a tiring day brings all back together as one

Through a child's eyes nights can hold monsters and fears

A mothers love makes terrors disappear with the years

Through a child's eyes there are other children each day

They learn of each other through imagination and play

Through a child's eyes school can be frightening and scary

Learning and experience through life they must carry

Through a child's eyes death and sorrow devastates

Making them grow and mature at a rate that escalates

Through a child's eyes emerging into adolescence is confusing

Most of the time frightening but sometimes amusing

Through a child's eyes parents never understand visions

They become ignorant as teens gain wisdom

Through a child's eyes bodies, emotions and feelings grow

Love, hate, hurt and confusion is what they know

Through a child's eyes true love becomes known

Commitment for life is made with a partner of their own

Throught a child's eyes a new life is made from two

Some of their parents wisdom is starting to shine through

Through a child's eyes parents become friends till the end

So all of life's misunderstandings are put on the mend

Through a child's eyes life has been an uphill fight

Now their child's eyes will have all of the sight
