Parting with childhood
Thursday, August 08, 2013
Little hands light as morning light
Shining bright with ignorance 
or is it innocence? 

Baby teeth smiles, so straight
The choices of life are yet 
to show. 

Laugh little ones and live.
Live a little more. 
Learning to love, not knowing
love can lull and lure and

I smile, you smile
because I smile at you.
I smile at you because...

One day your heart and hands
will be heavy too
Abused and ignored.
Smiles tarnished, flawed. 
Laughter and living replaced with
life and existing. 
But not today
My lovely little lambs
at least not today.
