Innocence reigns, in the eyes of a child

They watch, bewildered, awed and beguiled

Asking about, the man with the hat

Wondering why, he is dressed quite like that

Why the sky is blue, and the grass is green

And every other color, left in between

Catching the sun, as it lights up their face

Taking it in, with seraphic grace

Oh how I wish I could see what they see

Shine on, dear child, who never was me

Live out your life, explore your dreams

Capture the beauty, of every moonbeam

Race to the morning, rise with the sun

Always remember, you’re second to none
