The little child


The little child looks at the world
with wonder in his eye
He is an innocent little fellow
yet always curious to know why

The little child is very naughty
a real mischievous creature
He lives life on his own terms
without worrying about the future

The little child fears the unknown
and if he's hurt, he starts crying
But he doesn't brood on it for long
with glee he soon starts laughing

The little child wants to live his dreams
he's stubborn to have his demands met
He wants things to happen his way
nothing seems impossible to him yet

How much ever we may deny it
inside all of us resides a little child
Don't be in a hurry to grow old
don't let the little child in you become mild!
