Whose simple logic makes me smile
And lose myself in reflective reverie
If only things could as simple be..
If my thinking could be that concrete
Maybe conflicts my mind could beat
Come to black or white conclusions
Avoid areas grey that cause confusion..
If like my child I could sometimes be
Maybe I could imbibe things as easily
Not lose a childish sense of wonder
Not be afraid of making a blunder
Get excited by objects inane
Find happiness in things mundane
Not be weighed down by irrational fear
Of being judged or rejected by peers
With my child I am trying to learn
How to my childhood I can return
Discover in every moment pleasure
Make each moment something to treasure.
