"Through A Child's Eyes"

The innocence of a child
sees no color of skin,
only the depth of the spirit.
The warmth of a smile
shines as bright as the morning sun.

Butterflies seem to dance upon the winds,
an endless flight of beauty and grace.
Rainbows appear as
infinite spectrums of colors,
each binding the worlds between them.

Life's true pleasures are found
in the sweet smell of a rose,
the softness of a newborn kitten.
Each day brings forth a new beginning
of joy and discovery, of love unconditional.
