The Child Within Us

As children.jpg

Let us always remember
When by the creek we would play
Let us never lose the child within us
And be knights, superstars, heroes
For the rest of our days

 

Faithful and loyal let us be
Like our pets we once trained
With the humility of an acorn
And the cheerfulness of a daisy
Like a child let us be this way

 

For all those who think we are foolish
In wishing our childhoods to stay
We are for the most better
For saving the children in us
Instead of sending them away

 

For in saving the child within us

We forever young will remain

For as the great teacher once taught us

“Only those who come to me as children,

Will come to heaven to reign.”
