Through a Child's Eyes


Through a child’s eyes we see
Hoping we will never grow old
Watching what keeps us free
Watching our short future unfold

Who knows what lies ahead
Who worries for what has passed
We learn from those long dead
Hoping the moment will last

We carry the past on our backs
Each generation does the same
From a game of childhood jacks
To the abyss of eternal flame

But we do the best we can
In this short stay on earth
We occupy our place on land
Wondering if there is rebirth
