When We Are Children

by aquietwalk


We can really dance forever,

streaming across golden grasslands

running wild with passion,

in crystal autumn winds.


We cannot imagine pain,

haven’t yet endured a moment

when our world is shattered,

much worse than skinned knees.


We can laugh out loud

sharing special setting suns

in the freedom of blue skies

jumping hurdles that allow.


We can walk along with hands

with open embrace, a love

that means just only that

without any need to wonder.


We will only live this life

in the simple manner we choose;

if holding back a gray cloud,

our shadowed eyes remain open.


We can speak to each other

not knowing any reason, why

we can’t – our obstacles are

far away, deep in the wood.


We can find our way then,

in continued dialogue

well beyond our teenage angst,

rather, delightful designs of love.


We can dance together

when we are children

welcome our wide open fields

share the wonder of life!
