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.
