The Sweet Gentle Smile Of A Child
There is nothing more beautiful in this life
than the sweet gentle smile of a child,
the presence of innocence
the joys to be wild.
the love that they give you
in their childish ways,
from the day of their birth
to the ending of days.
The knowing they're loved and protected
to keep them safe in the world that they know,
of capturing their childhood memories
in pictures and thoughts that will grow.
The laughter in playtime encounters
and comfort in mishaps they share,
tomfoolery and tricks they play on you
for a child's life is one we all bare.
We grasp at their tantrums and behavioural ways
as a learning to understanding their ways,
and encourage them to learn from our teachings
in which we give all our love and our praise.
When they hurt we find we hurt with them
and comfort them so lovingly and mild,
there is nothing more beautiful in today's life
than the sweet gentle smile of a child.

I think for us to understand love, we must first look around us. Nature shows us the beauty of its love for the earth; where animals of the world show us the true meaning of love and companionship
My inspiration for this poem, was from my own little dog. the joy she gives me, the love and companionship I always receive from her. The fact she is my little girl, as I do not think of her as a pet.
I think we all have suffered a broken heart, especially after the loss of a loved one; but it is up to us to let our heart know that they will always be with us, and no longer needs to bleed.
