Through the Eyes of a Child

Through the eyes of a child
is seen wonderments and
amazing scenes to relish and
ponder upon. Like windows
they are, to take in all that is
before them. May it always
be sights of pleasantness and
goodness that will fill the mind
and heart when gazing at life
as it passes by.

In the face of a child is seen
beauty, hope, and purity;
unscarred and undefiled by
life’s brutal reality. Like a
beacon of light shining,
innocents declaring joy it is.
May it always stay fresh and
bright, giving smiles of delight
for all to see and cherish as
time gracefully adds its flavor.

Through the Eyes of a Child by 

In the world today, what is it that chrildren see?
What is it in this world where they live that shapes their smile, their attitude… their love?

Let us give them hope by living our lives in
goodness, leaving to them a world filled with
joy and shared happiness.

We are always but one generation away from either losing or preseving what is right and what is good… and what becomes of our children.

    This one goes right to the heart of any truth man can share… for it is found in the eyes of a child the trust we all once had- unblemished by bias or false notions. I can say beyond a shadow of doubt… great is the truth in this one Roger and straight forward… upright.

  • I know you and I are on the same page of so many things, the ones that are truly important. Bless you my friend.
