Touch of a Child

T’was yesterday
dipping toes in the water,
telling tales by the campfire,
eager to walk the trails and unafraid
tasting life...

T’was yesterday
spent chasing dreams
as storms overwhelmed the future.
The painted rainbow endings vanished,
became a childish fantasy...

T’was yesterday
when the smile fled to memories.
Steps faltered in scabbed over pain,
an unhealed grief
filled with life’s doubts...

T’was yesterday,
a seventh-day meal tasted in solitude
bound hope.
The silhouette of depression’s hunger
dissolved by light.
T’was yesterday
the trust of a child
deemed the heart worthy.
Love blossomed from healing touches
into new growth.
