If I Could See with Baby's Eyes---a Poem
If I could see with baby's eyes
not knowing what they are seeing
I'd let the world come to my size
forever loving and agreeing.
If I could hear with baby's ears
cannons would play lullabies
laughter would come out of tears
truth would be replacing lies.
If I could touch with baby's hands
it could be your face I'd touch
with tiny heart that understands
why I love you all so much.
If I could lay where babies sleep
I'd let it be my very last
and at my final count of sheep
get stuck in a dream of one sweet past.
