When We Are Children

by thom amundsen

diverse

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!
