unknowing eyes in moments gaze to ponder within of knowledge gained
through frightful lessons where fire raged and silken water's intertwined of grace
still each step haphazard and slow to gain momentum for which to grow
each tumbling year quickly rose to fall upon the twilight road
to gaze beyond to reflect of hope where melancholy had lightened the load
each silent year of golden life had left a novel of joyous sight
to crawl to walk to climb above an innocent child a man of love........
