Darling Child

I watch you as you play pretend,
a princess or the president;
The queen of all the cities 'round,
or even a crazy circus clown.

Your eyes beam with a mystery,
that only the Lord above can see;
He has great plans for future things,
throughout long winters and flowering springs.

With a lust for life no adult can show,
your smiling face in heaven's glow;
Could teach the world just how to shine,
and open hearts before their time.

The tiny little hands I hold,
are worth more than all the silver and gold;
Your easy days of wondrous play,
in memory shall never go astray.
