Your Child's Eyes

The innocence lost so long ago The undying faith we used to know The gentle rain of a summer's skies You can find it all in your child's eyes. The world was right one time it seems And we could reach beyond our dreams To meet a challenge of any size That fire still burns in your child's eyes. In a world of anger and miscontent And the frustrations of a life misspent And you wait in fear as the storms arise You can still find peace in your child's eyes. Take the time for all those things Hear his words: feel the joy he brings There is no hate; there are no lies There is only love in your child's eyes.
