I Say Be A Child
You make me feel alive little child, happy and free.
Your fresh sense of wonder has renewed me.

You simply take my breath away.
Forever in my heart you'll stay.

I say be a child for as long as you can.
Make silly noises into a fan.

You have plenty of time right now.
Moo at every single cow.

Tickle all the elmos they make us both giggle.
Find entertainment watching a fishes tail wiggle.

Riding a bike down the aisles of a store.
Little child you are never a bore!

You make me smile, make me laugh, you make me happy too.
You make me worry, make me fret, you make me sad and blue.

Life is an emotional roller coaster ride for me.
I don't know what your future will be.

But for now, Simon Says and Shoots and Ladders.
Long walks where nothing matters.

Marbles and legos and things with a million pieces.
Stained shirts, untied shoes, and pants with a million creases.

Little child I love you so.
And how I enjoy watching you grow.

This is how I feel about my two grandsons.It's so wonderful to see their happy little faces and see the changes in them as they grow.

Angelique-  I really appreciated this work, last month I became a grandfather for the first time and have found that nothing can turn the time back, at least temporarily, like holding a newborn child in your arms. Thanks for putting into words.

It is amazing the power they have. We get lost in their innocence, and are left longing to feel that carefree once again. We are blessed to have children in our lives, to lend us that feeling for a few brief moments. I love the way you pay homage to that fact with your words here.
