Love The Child

I saw a photo of myself a child

In sailor suit my sister by my side

She looks boldly at the cameraman

I uncertain guarded my time I bide

 

Lovely gentle children I see there

Innocent they sit and face the day

A long road they will travel and still do

Looking back we’ve come a long long way

 

Seeing my own face I told myself

I must love that child treat him kind

We’re hard upon ourselves in later times

His eyes are watchful seeking love’s sure sign
